Athletes who have not pre-registered interest, but finish in the top three in the qualifying race will not be eligible for selection.

Notes
There are no reserve or substitute selections and the size of the team will be determined by entries at the qualifying events and availability for the representative race in May 2019. Athletes who are unable to compete in the representative race will not be able to defer to another team opportunity.
Athletes should register their interest under the age group at which they will contest the qualifying race. If there is a change of age group between qualifier and representative race then they will move up an age group and compete in their correct age group on the day of competition.
Please note the selected athletes are required to cover their own costs of entry, travel, accommodation where necessary. England kit will be available to purchase.
