Discovery Channel's Roger Hammond has been included in the Great Britain team for the Tour of Britain, which starts in Glasgow on August 30. The former UK road champion replaces under-23 rider Tom White, who has had to pull out of the race after being involved in an accident on Wednesday.

The 32-year-old Classics star is certain to bolster the Great Britain team with his strength and experience.

Rob Ellingworth, the GB Under-23 National Endurance Coach, said of Hammond's addition to the team: "This is a great opportunity for the other riders to have the experience and the professionalism of Roger riding with them. Roger is great to have around and he is very excited about joining the team and pushing for a top place in the race."
