The St Albans-based cycling team will take part in the televised event alongside the country's best home-based talent, when they take to the streets of Redditch in Worcestershire.

They will now come up against the likes of Olympians Andy Tennant and Ed Clancy.

And they warmed up with yet more great results.

Adam Strudwick started things off by claiming the win in round one of the RAF MK series with Clay Davies joining him on the podium in third.

Youngster Matt Watson then claimed his best senior result with second at the popular Milton Keynes Summer Series.

That was in the cat 3/4 race and in the higher categories, Davies got in the breakaway of the day to finish third once again, with Andy Whale 10th.

And he completed a hat-trick of third places at the Hog Hill National B event.
