Field and Wyman to lead 14-rider squad

British Cycling named the riders who will represent Great Britain at the UCI Cyclo-Cross World Championships taking place in Hoogerheide, Netherlands on February 1-2.

Current elite national champions Ian Field and Helen Wyman will lead the team of 14 British riders which also includes recently crowned junior national champion Thomas Craig.

Team manager Phil Dixon said, "We're heading out to Hoogerheide with a squad of riders, the majority of whom have raced cyclo-cross internationally this season - in the younger categories, this is something we have introduced this year for the Great Britain Cyclo-Cross Development Programme, and it will be interesting to see how this sets them up at the Worlds.

"We have some real experience in the riders selected for the elite races, and the elite women remain at the top of the world ranking for the second year running. In particular Helen Wyman is coming into form after her early season win in the European season.

"Overall, I believe we have some exciting prospects for this year's world championships and the team are looking forward to racing at the event."

The Belgs are going to smash this yet again with the Clogs second. The Brits will not even feature.

Yeah way to go out on a limb. The Belgians ARE the best in the world, so the rest should just not show up?? Oh and by the way Helen, Nikki and Gabby will most definitely "feature"
