GB team set for mountain bike worlds

World champions Gee Atherton and Manon Carpenter will lead a formidable British team at the mountain bike world championships later this month.

A 29-strong team will travel to Andorra for the UCI MTB World Championships from 31 August to 6 September.

England’s Atherton and Carpenter from Wales

defend the downhill titles they won in Norway last year.

Fellow Britons Josh Bryceland, Rachel Atherton and Tahnee Seagrave could provide the strongest opposition.

“We’re enjoying a golden age of downhill racing in this country and I hope to see this continue at the worlds,” said Shane Sutton, British Cycling technical director.
