Swiss Cycling announced its roster for the European Downhill Championships in Hafjell, Norway, this weekend, August 4 - 7. Five elite men, one elite woman, three junior men and one junior woman will represent Switzerland. A complete roster is below.

The riders will be under the guidance of national coach Albert Iten.

The Swiss dominated the European Cross Country Championships in early July in Israel, but the nation is not as well known for its gravity racing talent.
