Cycling Australia confirmed Tuesday the Australian road team which will contest the Junior World Championships to be staged in Capetown, South Africa, from July 12 to 20.
The riders are Rohan Dennis, Michael Freiberg, Michael Hepburn, Alastair Loutit and Michael Matthews. Freiberg, Hepburn, Loutit and Matthews will travel to Europe in late June for a number of races after which selectors will nominate the starting riders for the road race and time trial in South Africa. Dennis will join the track team training camp and has been selected for the road team to contest the time trial only.
Zoe Appel, Chloe Hosking, Lauren Kitchen and Sophie Ootes are the selected women.
