Johannesburg - All four of South Africa's road cyclists at the London Olympic Games have been selected in the national team for the UCI Road World Championships in Limburg, Netherlands, between September 15 and 23.

Daryl Impey, the lone SA competitor in the men's race in the English capital, will spearhead a trio of men in the elite race at the global championships.

Ashleigh Moolman-Pasio, Robyn de Groot and Joanna van de Winkel have all been included in the six-strong women's team, along with Cherise Stander, who was controversially omitted from the Olympic squad.
