The Dutch Cycling Federation has announced the selected riders that will take part in the upcoming World Championships of Yorkshire.

The Dutch team starts in the several competitions of the championships with strong teams and riders that make them one of the favourite countries to take the rainbow jerseys. In the men's roster for the road race stands out the presence of Mathieu van der Poel, who has stated that this is an ideal course for him.

"We have been able to put together a great team for the mixed relay, the time trial and the road race, with which we go on the hunt for most important places," said national coach Koos Moerenhout. "I have full confidence in the individual and team qualities of these strong batches of riders."

Strong riders and former champions like Annemiek van Vleuten, Anna van der Breggen and Marianne Vos are part for the selection for the individual time trial and the road race of the championships. "It is not surprising that the Dutch elite women are among the favourites at the World Championships," explained national coach Loes Gunnewijk.

"We will be at the start with the strongest possible team, we can hopefully decide the race in our favour in the road race with different scenarios. Obviously, it is team enormously motivated to take home the world titles in both the time trial and the road race."
