News: GB Team for CX Euros

British Cycling confirms the 16 riders who will represent Great Britain at the UEC European Cyclo-cross Championships, taking place from 7th-8th November in ‘S_Hertogenbosch, Netherlands.

Anna Kay, silver medallist in last year’s under-23 women’s event, will represent Great Britain, as will the reigning national champion Hattie Harnden, who finished nineth in the recent UCI Mountain Bike World Championships. Making her debut in the under-23 category at this level is Josie Nelson, with Abbie Manley, Amy Perryman and Sophie Thackray also set to line-up for Great Britain in the under-23 women’s race.

In the elite women’s race, Ffion James and Amira Mellor will represent the Great Britain Cycling Team.

The under-23 men’s race will see representation by eight British riders, including British Cycling’s Senior Academy rider Oli Stockwell who is a new rider to the programme with a main focus on cyclo-cross. Thomas Mein, who won the Tabor round of the world cup series last season, will also compete in the under-23 men’s race as will Lewis Askey who returns to cyclo-cross having enjoyed a debut season on the road with Groupama-FDJ. Brothers Dan and Toby Barnes plus Tom Couzens, Rory McGuire and Cameron Mason complete the Great Britain Cycling Team’s line-up for this category.

On the safety of travelling to such championships when countries are going into lockdown due to the pandemic, BC says “Dr Nigel Jones, Head of Medical Services, has been in regular contact with the event organiser for these European Championships and is confident the COVID-19 measures they have put in place will mitigate risk to our riders. The riders and support staff all travel under the government guidance for elite sport during the lockdown period, and everyone who is scheduled to travel has chosen to opt-in to do so.”
