British cross worlds team selected

British Cycling has selected the 13 riders that will represent Great Britain at the World Cyclo-Cross Championships in Sankt Wendel, Germany at the end of this month.

Six times national champion Helen Wyman will be Britain’s best prospect having enjoyed one of her best cross seasons to date. She’ll be looking to improve on her fifth place in 2006. Fellow international regulars Gabby Day and Nikki Harris join her in the women’s team.

The three-strong men’s team is headed by newly crowned national champion Paul Oldham. Jody Crawforth and Ian Field make up the other two places, the latter having made several strong showings in Europe already this season.

The under-23 team comprises Luke Gray and Kenta Gallagher, while the five-strong junior squad is led by new national champ Hugo Robinson.

The championships take place on January 29-30.
