Tour of Britain 2014: British domestic riders who could make their mark

The men flying the flag for the home UCI Continental teams

Madison-Genesis boss Roger Hammond, twice a stage winner himself at the Tour of Britain, had an unenviable task trying to whittle the team down to just six riders for this year’s race.

Tobyn Horton, national under-23 time trial champion Scott Davies and Peter Hawkins – who last year wore the leader’s jersey at An Post Ras before crashing out – all missed out.

Madison Genesis will take a strong squad to the Tour of Britain, with Alex Peters – front right – among their leading contenders

In their place, Alex Peters is one of four Brits in the team – with New Zealand duo Tom Scully and Mike Northey completing the line-up – and all are capable of a good showing.

Tour of the Reservoir winner Peters has enjoyed a great season – his win in the North East combined with being crowned best young rider on his way to second overall at the An Post Ras.

Team-mate Ian Bibby was fourth overall, too, and both will be keen to follow it up with a good showing at the Tour of Britain.
