Geraint Thomas will compete for Team Sky in Sunday’s team time trial at the Road World Championships in Bergen, despite having pulled out of the Great Britain team for the road race.

Tour de France and Vuelta a Espana winner Chris Froome, Owain Doull, Vasil Kiryienka, Michal Kwiatkowski and Gianni Moscon are also selected.

Team Sky’s Brett Lancaster said: “The guys are going to be really motivated after the Vuelta win.”

The championships begin on Sunday.

Thomas was the highest-placed British rider at last week’s Tour of Britain, his first race since breaking his collarbone in the Tour de France in July.

British Cycling head coach Iain Dyer said on Tuesday that the withdrawal of riders, including the Welshman, from his GB squad was “unfortunate but understandable”.
