GREAT Britain's line-up for the World Under-21 Team Cup semi-final in Gdansk later this month has been named.
Kyle Howarth will captain the team, which will also include Adam Ellis, Ashley Morris and Tom Perry.
The meeting takes place on Saturday May 25, with GB facing hosts Poland, Sweden and Russia as they bid for a place in the Final at Pardubice in September.
GB co-boss Phil Morris said: “We're under no illusions that it's going to be a tough event, but we've gone for a young line-up who will be determined to give it their best shot.
“Kyle came within a whisker of qualifying for the individual World Under-21 Final, and although Tom hasn't quite been in top form so far this season we feel the big track should suit him.
“Both Ashley and Adam have had some excellent scores in the Premier League lately, Ashley scored 15 for Workington a couple of weekends ago, so that was our thinking there.
“It will be great experience for the riders, the opposition will be tough but we will go there with a very positive attitude.”
