Hayley Simmonds has been named in the Team England cycling squad for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games.
The 29-year-old, who is based in Bar Hill, is selected in a 27-strong squad, and alongside Melissa Lowther and Abigail Van Twisk in the women’s road team.
Team England chef de mission Sarah Winckless said: “This is a really busy time of year for our cycling teams with the spring classics on the road, the world cup season starting for the mountain bikers and the world championships on the track so I’m delighted we are taking such a strong team to the Commonwealth Games.
“England has a long history in cycling at the Commonwealth Games having won over 100 medals. I’m hopeful this team will be able to add to that tally for team and country in just a few weeks time.”
