Australian national team manager Luke Madill said the Redlands were producing a number of talented riders.

"Redlands and bayside clubs are doing a great job of preparing their riders and credit must go to everyone who has contributed to getting these riders over to Belgium in top shape," he said.

"Letitia Weatherhead (of Bayside BMX Club) in particular has been impressive over the last few years and I am looking forward to seeing her race the best in the world."

The world championships run for five days from Tuesday, July 23.
