SYDNEY: Tour de France champion Cadel Evans will lead a strong Australia road cycling team for the Olympics. The men’s team also features sprint superstar Matt Goss, 2012 Milan-San Remo Classic winner Simon Gerrans, triple individual time trial world champion Michael Rogers and Stuart O’Grady. Australia will have three representatives in the women’s road race in Shara Gillow, Chloe Hosking and Amanda Spratt. “This has been one of the most difficult team selections in Australia’s cycling history because we really have enough talent to field two teams of Olympic standard,” said Australian professional men’s coordinator Matt White. “It’s a great position to be in and we’re really pleased with the riders we’ll be putting on the starting line.”
