Mountain biker Jean Christophe Peraud was selected to represent the French national team at the UCI road world championships next month in Switzerland.

Peraud was named to the time trial squad by the French Cycling Federation after he won the French national time trial in June in Saint-Brieuc.

Peraud is well known as a star in mountain biking. One year ago, he won a silver medal in the cross country race at the Olympic Games in Beijing, China.

Peraud, who races for Team Massi, will ride a bike with a custom paint job that includes the colours of the French flag in honor of his national championship title.
