Former Ballarat school student Lucas Hamilton has been selected as part of the Australian team for the UCI Road World Championships.
Hamilton, who is from Ararat but attended Ballarat Clarendon College, is one of six set to represent Australia in the men’s under-23 time trial.
The squad selections in all categories for this year were based on a clearly defined strategy, with riders selected for specific roles to help place an Australian rider on the podium.
“We know the course is going to be super tough and feel confident we have the right mix of talent and purpose for this event,” Australian technical director Brad McGee said.
The World Championships will be held in Innsbruck in Austria from September 23.
