HUDDERSFIELD star Ed Clancy has been selected for the London Olympics.
The gold medal cyclist from Beijing is in the endurance track events – the omnium and team pursuit.
The Great Britain cycling team includes David Millar alongside Sir Chris Hoy, Victoria Pendleton, Bradley Wiggins and Mark Cavendish.
In 2004 Millar was handed a two-year suspension for admitting use of banned blood booster EPO, but is now a fervent anti-doping campaigner and was last month officially cleared to compete at London 2012 after the British Olympic Association’s bylaw banning drug cheats for life was revoked.
Millar is one of eight riders in the men’s road squad long list but played an integral role in Cavendish’s World Championships win last September and is likely to fill one of the five spots when the final team is named for the July 28 road race.
There were few surprises in the squad tasked with improving on Britain’s haul of eight gold medals in Beijing.
Hoy and Pendleton, for whom the Olympics will mark the end of her career, lead the track squad, Tour de France contender Wiggins is included in the road squad and defending champion Nicole Cooke is among the women’s group on the road.
