British Cycling name Wiggins, Froome and Trott in 2014/15 squad
Last Updated: 19/11/14 12:49pm
Sir Bradley Wiggins, Chris Froome, Mark Cavendish and Laura Trott have all been named in Great Britain's cycling teams for the next funding cycle.
As expected, Wiggins, Froome and Cavendish are all named in the road race squad along with Alex Dowsett, Ben Swift and Geraint Thomas.
The established superstars have been joined by several younger riders including Katie Archibald, Tre Whyte and Kyle Evans with GB naming an elite Olympic and Paralympic Podium Programme squad together with Academy and Development line-ups.
“The podium programme is looking in a healthy position with just under two years to go until Rio 2016 and I’m happy to see Katie Archibald, Tre Whyte, Kyle Evans and Grant Ferguson graduate to the podium programme, all of whom impressed with their results from last season," said British Cycling technical director Shane Sutton.
"It’s also good to have the additions of Ciara Horne and Mark Christian to the squad which enforces our policy that the door is never closed to talented riders.
“The women’s academy endurance programme is beginning to take shape now and, under the guidance of coach Darren Tudor at the Newport velodrome, the riders are really starting to develop with the ultimate aim of feeding into the elite squads.
"Amy Roberts, who recently moved up to Manchester to train with the podium riders, is an outstanding example of this. I’m also encouraged that we can continue to support young female riders with a road focus, such as Lucy Garner and Anna Christian, who both made selection for the elite road world championships this year."
Julian Winn, who was previously involved in the national set-up as the team manager for the road race at the 2008 Olympics, has returned as the interim mountain bike coach.
