BBC Sport - World Road Championships 2015: Alex Dowsett targets Rio

Dowsett targeting Rio qualification

British time trial champion Alex Dowsett says it is "feasible" that he may win a medal at the World Championships in Richmond, Virginia but it is unlikely because the course will not suit him.

He says his main aim, and that of team-mate Steven Cummings, is to secure a second spot in next year's Olympic time trial with a top-10 finish.

The Movistar ride believes he is more likely to win a medal in the future "on a circuit that really suits me".
