Gerrans heads Australia's Worlds selection

Simon Gerrans wins Grand Prix Cycliste de Quebec

Simon Gerrans (Orica-GreenEdge), winner of Milan-Sanremo and the GP Quebec, will lead Australia's national team in the World Championships next Sunday. Yesterday, the national federation selected its nine-man team with Gerrans as the clear star.

Gerrans finished third last year in Amstel Gold behind Philippe Gilbert (BMC Racing). The Dutch classic covers some of the same roads and uses the same finishing climb, the Cauberg, as the Worlds. Gerrans won the Grand Prix Cycliste de Quebec WorldTour race in Canada last Friday.
