TWO talented Times Territory cyclists have been named in a British women's team targeting success at the Olympic Games this summer.

Former GB triathlete Tanja Slater and 18-year-old Emma Trott, who began her career with Welwyn Wheelers, have been selected in the 10-strong Team Halfords Bikehut squad.

The riders will use bikes designed by Olympian Chris Boardman and is the first ever entirely British women's professional team.

They will be supplemented by two male riders, Rob Hayles and Tom Southam. World champion Nicole Cooke, twice winner of the women's Tour de France, leads the group which is designed to put her in contention for Olympic gold at the Beijing Games later this year.
