Geoff said, “That’s the whole Team GB squad plus young Macie Schmidt who is in fine form for such a young rider and was very close to selection, Sandra Tambroska who hasn’t ridden yet but has always supported this event, plus Kayleigh Clarke who is over early for the tour from Australia.
“I know there is a doubt about Dani that will depend as with her test involvement on her RAF commitments and exams. It should be a good meeting, just before the test series and the World Championships. Some of the girls have verbally informed me of their attendance but the official invite is now with their clubs.”
