Manx cyclists to compete in British championships

Manx cyclists Mark Cavendish, Peter Kennaugh and Anna Christian will all compete at the British National Road Championships on the Isle of Man later this month.

Two-time British champion Kennaugh will be part of Team Sky's squad, while Cavendish - who won the event in 2014 - will compete for Dimension Data.

They'll be trying to beat current champion Adam Blythe - who will also take part, while Alex Dowsett will be aiming to win a sixth British time trial title.

In the women's event, former world champion Lizzie Deignan takes on current British champion Hannah Barnes, as well as local rider Christian.
