Olympic gold-medallist Tom Pidcock and world cross-country champion Evie Richards are among the names who will represent Great Britain at next week's UCI Mountain Bike World Championships in Les Gets, France.

Pidcock, who won spectacularly atop Alpe d’Huez in his debut Tour de France last month, will join teammate Cameron Orr in the elite men’s cross-country race. Victory in the competition would earn the INEOS Grenadiers rider his second rainbow jersey this year, having won the cyclocross world title in Fayetteville, USA, back in January.
