Huntingdon man Danny King has been named in the Great Britain side to race in Event Two of the World Cup.

King has made the final four-man team selected by national boss Alun Rossiter from a provisional 10-rider squad.

Great Britain face Australia, America and Latvia at King’s Lynn on June 8 with only the winners guaranteed a place in the final five days later.

King was part of the GB team which finished last in the final in 2014 and Rossiter feels he has done enough to retain his place.

Rossiter said: “Danny is riding well enough of late to deserve his inclusion. He’s been there, done it, got the t-shirt at this level and his experience could be very important.
