British Cycling’s cyclo-cross co-ordinator Matt Ellis said: “The squad which has been selected to represent the Great Britain Cycling Team in Dubendorf is a really interesting one, with lots of prospects and lots to look out for.
“On the elite side, we’ve seen Pidcock really get to grips with racing against the world’s best men this season and he’s very much looking to peak at these world championships, which I am confident he is capable of. It’s also great to see Evie back racing for us, she’s been incorporating a lot of cyclo-cross training into her mountain bike programme as these world championships are a big target for her.
“In the under-23 categories, we’ve seen some strong performances at international level this year and in particular I’ve seen Anna Kay really step up and grow in confidence. On the men’s side, Thomas Mein similarly has stepped up and his victory at the world cup in Tabor highlighted this.
“In the junior categories, we’ve got a real mix of background talent. As well as our out-and-out cyclo-cross riders, we have Millie Couzens and Oli Stockwell both joining us from British Cycling’s track endurance junior academy programme while Anna Flynn and Corran Carrick-Anderson are members of the mountain bike development squad. It’s great to see the number of riders within the squad who can transfer their skills across disciplines at such a high level.
“British Cycling has a history of success at world championships, and every year I see this legacy motivating the team on race day. I think we have some real potential again this year, and I look forward to seeing what the team can achieve.”
