London: Twins Simon and Adam Yates will spearhead Britain’s challenge at the Cycling Road World Championships in Innsbruck, Austria, later this month, British Cycling announced on Wednesday.

Simon, who is leading the Tour of Spain, and Adam have assumed the leadership roles with both four-time Tour de France winner Chris Froome and this year’s Tour de France champion Geraint Thomas having opted not to compete.

Both the 26-year-old brothers have targeted the championships — which get underway on Sept.26 — believing the mountainous terrain is suited to their talents.

“We’ve selected a strong team to take on this year’s world championships, and there’s a lot of talent within the squad,” said performance director Stephen Park.

“Chris Froome and Geraint Thomas are obvious omissions from the men’s team, and this was a decision we made mutually.”
