The Great Britain Cycling Team for the 2015 UEC European Track Cycling Championships. Great Britain Cycling Team technical director, Shane Sutton said: “We’ve selected a strong squad for this year’s European Championships. With the Olympic Games in Rio now less than a year away it’s a great opportunity to secure some vital qualifying points”.

“We saw some really promising performances at the British Track Championships and the Europeans provide a good chance to put the talent out there and pit themselves against the best in the world.

“Having Bradley Wiggins there for the whole squad is a plus. If you want to go into big battles, you need big leaders and Brad is a big leader. He’s won the Tour, he’s won everything in cycling so it’s good for the squad he is going.”
