England track and road cycling line-up for 2014 Commonwealth Games announced

Bradley Wiggins is among 31 English cyclists selected to ride on the road and track at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow over July 23 to August 3.

Wiggins joins a host of Olympic champions in the line-up, which includes Laura Trott, Joanna Rowsell, Dani King, Ed Clancy, Steven Burke, Jason Kenny and Philip Hindes.

Notable is that Wiggins has been selected for the road disciplines, and not the track. Previously, Wiggins has said that he would like to return to the track for the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio.

Lizzie Armitstead is part of a very strong women’s line-up, and she will ride on the track and road. The Olympic road race silver medallist will be joined by Emma Pooley, Lucy Garner, Hannah Barnes, Rowsell, Trott and King in the road disciplines.

    i’m surprised by the absence of the Yates twins and Ben Swift.

      me too….. the way Adam and Simon Yates are riding they are definately on form.

      Cyclingweekly – I am getting frustrated by the media hype around Wiggins. the GB Cycling squad is NOT a one-man team!!!!

      • Tom

        Simon broke a collar bone and has not raced for about 5 weeks not sure of form. Adam has climbed really well in the high mountains, but there are none of those in the middle of Glasgow. It’s a puncheur’s course. In addition, not everyone declares themselves available so the team is selected from those interested in riding.
