Four riders - two men and two women - will represent the US National Team at the UCI Marathon World Championships in Stattegg, Austria, on August 23.

Jeremiah Bishop (MonaVie/Cannondale) and Harlan Price (Independent Fabrication) qualified automatically for the men's team - as did Pua Sawicki (Ellsworth) and Heather Holmes for the women's team.

Bishop earned his spot after finishing second at the US marathon championships earlier this month, and Price earned his nod as the current number-one ranked man in the USA Cycling National Ultra Endurance Calendar rankings.

In the women's contest, Sawicki secured her automatic nomination with a second place finish at the US marathon nationals. Holmes earned a berth by riding to fifth place at US marathon nationals.

The four riders will have to pay their own way to the worlds.
