The countdown is officially on, with British Cycling announcing the team that will represent the nation at the 2017 UCI Downhill World Championships being held on September 5-10 in Cairns, Australia. The squad is 19 strong! Notable absentee is Brendan Fairclough, although this is not the first time this particular "freeracer" has failed to make the selection following a disappointing season, by his lofty standards. Stay tuned to keep up with the team news as other countries announce their squads over the coming weeks.
