European Track Championships Squad

British Cycling has announced their team for the Under 23 UEC European Track Championships, which take place July 26 – 31 in Portugal, listing a total of 29 young riders that includes the current Elite World Champions Dani King and Laura Trott, along with elite-level Gold medallists Sam Harrison and Jess Varnish. Performance Manager Shane Sutton said: “We’re sending a large team of riders out to Portugal, all of whom we believe are capable of performing well at European level. The size of the squad, and the fact that some riders haven’t made selection this time, is a testament to the success and strength of our Olympic Academy and Olympic Development Programmes and means we’re in a good position looking to London 2012 and beyond.”


With Geraint Thomas riding high in this year’s Tour de France, Wales has yet more cause for celebration with the announcement of the U23 Team, which includes no less than seven Welsh riders – Sam Harrison, Jonathan Mould, Luke RoweU23 Men’s Endurance), Owain Doull (Junior Men’s Endurance), Elinor Barker, Amy Roberts (Junior Women’s Endurance) and Becky James (U23 Women’s Sprint).
