World champion will take on both races
Fabian Cancellara will go for both titles at the world championships in Melbourne. The Saxo Bank rider leads the Swiss men's team announced Friday by Swiss Cycling.
The reigning world time trial champion will look to defend his title as the country's only nominee in that discipline.
Cancellara will lead an eight-man team in the road race, with five ProTour riders and three from BMC Racing Team. He will be looking to take his record fourth time trial title, but has said that his primary aim is to win the road race.
Swiss Cycling also announced the U23 men's team. The women's team was announced last month.
