USA Cycling has announced the eight-person U.S. roster for the upcoming UCI Track World Championships in Copenhagen, Denmark.

As the defending world champion in the individual pursuit, 19-year-old Taylor Phinney (Boulder, Colo./Trek-Livestrong) earned an automatic nomination to the men’s squad. The 2009 world championships in Poland saw Phinney become the first American male to win an elite world title on the track in 13 years. In addition to defending his pursuit title, he will also contest the Omnium event in Copenhagen.

Rounding out the men’s squad will be discretionary nominees Daniel Holloway (Morgan Hill, Calif.), Colby Pearce (Boulder, Colo./Big Shark Bicycle Company), and Giddeon Massie (Cypress, Calif./Bike Religion). Holloway will contest the Scratch Race and then team up with Pearce for the Madison. Massie will compete in the Sprint and Kilometer Time Trial.

Sarah Hammer (Temecula, Calif.) received the only automatic nomination to the women’s squad by clocking a 3:27 to win the individual pursuit at the World Cup in Cali, Colombia earlier this season. The two-time world champion will compete for a third rainbow jersey in the individual pursuit and will also contest the Omnium event.

Discretionary nominees Lauren Tamayo (Asheville, N.C./Peanut Butter & Co. Twenty 12) and Dotsie Bausch (Irvine, Calif./ATF-Empower Coaching Systems) will then join Hammer for the Team Pursuit event. Also receiving a nomination to the women’s team is Shelley Evans (Scotts Valley, Calif./Peanut Butter & Co. Twenty 12). Evans, who is fresh off the overall win at the Women’s Tour of New Zealand, will compete in the Points Race and Scratch Race in Copenhagen.
