London - Chris Froome has withdrawn from the midweek time-trial at the world road championships to focus on Sunday's road race, British Cycling have confirmed.

The 27-year-old wants more time to recover ahead of Sunday's 261km road race in Limburg, Netherlands when Mark Cavendish will ride in defence of his title.

The Team Sky rider was Tour de France runner-up behind Bradley Wiggins in July, won Olympic time-trial bronze behind his compatriot and was fourth in the Tour of Spain, which finished on September 9.

Froome's non-participation means Alex Dowsett is Britain's sole entrant in the 45.7km elite men's time-trial on Wednesday.
