USA Cycling announced their team of riders for the shortened UCI Road World Championships, scheduled to take place from September 24-27 in Imola and the Emilia-Romagna region in Italy. While the women's team is as expected, led by defending time trial world champion Chloe Dygert, there were some notable names missing out on the men's side.

Dygert will defend in the individual time trial, representing the US along with Amber Neben (Cogeas-Mettler) and Strade Bianche podium finisher Leah Thomas (Equipe Paule Ka).

Cyclingnews is the world's leader in English-language coverage of professional cycling. Started in 1995 by University of Newcastle professor Bill Mitchell, the site was one of the first to provide breaking news and results over the internet in English. The site was purchased by Knapp Communications in 1999, and owner Gerard Knapp built it into the definitive voice of pro cycling. Since then, major publishing house Future PLC has owned the site and expanded it to include top features, news, results, photos and tech reporting. The site continues to be the most comprehensive and authoritative English voice in professional cycling.
