08 July 2002

Scotland has announced a 19 strong cycling team for the games including two Olympic silver medallists.

Christopher Hoy and Craig MacLean are hoping to repeat their medal success at the Commonwealth Games in Manchester.

Louise Martin, chairman of the Commonwealth Games Council for Scotland (CGCS) said: “We have selected a strong team, with everyone who has met the selection criteria going to Manchester regardless of overall numbers. Our minimum target is to improve on our medal tally in Kuala Lumpur and I am confident that this can be achieved given our thorough preparation and thanks to the support of our team sponsor Bank of Scotland, Sport Scotland and many others.”

Following feedback from the 1998 Games, the athletes will be supported by an increased team staff, which again reflects the requirement for increased medical and sports science support including doctors, physiotherapists, psychologists and analysts.

The main party of the team will travel to Manchester on Monday 22 July.

The full cycling team are:

Caroline Alexander, Sally Ashbridge, Jo Cavill, Caroline Cook, Katrina Hair, Russell Anderson, Richard Chapman, Ross Edgar, Christopher Hoy, Alistair Kay, Marco Librizzi, Craig MacLean, James McCallum, Jason McIntyre, David Millar, Ross Muir, Michael Pooley, Alexander Ross, Duncan Urquhart.
