Sir Dave Brailsford will lead the Great Britain team at the UCI Road World Championships in Spain later this month.

The moves comes despite the 50-year-old having stepped down as British Cycling performance director in April to focus solely on his role as Team Sky principal.

British Cycling's new chief, technical director Shane Sutton, decided not travel to Ponferrada for the world championships in order to concentrate on the British National Track Championships from September 24-28 and then next month's European Track Championships in Guadeloupe.

Sutton said: "It made sense for me to ask Sir Dave to attend the Road World Championships, as obviously the road is his focus and full-time role.

"The decision allows me to stay in Manchester with the track riders for the nationals and to focus on the performances there which are increasingly important at this stage of the Olympic cycle."

The UCI Road World Championships take place from September 21-28.
