Thereafter, the team will depart for a further ten-day training camp in Newport, South Wales.

Any cyclist whom would like to be considered as part of the final team selection that will compete in Manchester will need to be present at the October training camp, and must be capable of posting faster times than those cyclists nominated in the above squad, be in possession of a current passport and have a British Visa allowing for departure on Sunday, 10 October.
