Cameron Mason and Zoe Bäckstedt Great Britain's greatest hopes for Cyclocross World Championship success

The British Cycling Federation confirmed the riders who will appear at the start of the Cyclocross World Championships in Tábor next week. Cameron Mason and Zoe Bäckstedt are the most eye-catching names.

Mason will compete in the men's elite competition in Tábor. The 23-year-old rider started the cyclo-cross season very well. For example, he finished second at the European Championship in Pontchâteau. In recent weeks there has been a bit more inconsistency, although he still didn't miss his shot at the British championships and finished well in some smaller crosses.

Mason will team up with Thomas Mein in the elite competition. Tom Pidcock, world champion two years ago won't ride in Tábor. Mason may be an outsider to compete for the podium on a good day, however British hopes are set on Zoe Bäckstedt. The 19-year-old rising star chooses to start in the U23 category, where she'll face rather moderate opposition.

Furthermore, Great Britain also has a chance of winning medals and perhaps the world title at the World Junior Championships for women, with Cat Ferguson and Imogen Wolff.
