British Cycling has announced a 44 rider squad that will be heading to the World Championships in Val di Sole at the end of August.
The team includes riders in cross-country, downhill, four-cross and eMTB disciplines as Team GB will hope to build on its strong performance in Leogang last year that included finishing second in the medal table.
The downhill team includes reigning downhill World Champion Reece Wilson
, two time downhill World Champion Danny Hart
and former junior World Champion Tahnee Seagrave. On the XC side, Olympian Evie Richards will be hoping for a strong result as will 2019 junior World Champion Charlie Aldridge. Enduro racer Elliott Heap will have another crack at the 4X World Championships following the silver medal he won in Val di Sole in 2019. Finally, it's great to see Tracey Moseley back at her first Championships since 2012 as she races in the eMTB category.
One big name from Britain that won't be making the trip over is recently crowned Olympic Champion and two-time World Champion from 2020, Tom Pidcock
. Pidcock is currently racing in the Vuelta a Espana, his first road Grand Tour that runs until September 5 so was not available for selection. The full team for all disciplines is listed belowBritish Cycling's 2021 World Championships Squad:
