The 26-year-old athlete, from Southsea, will be hoping to make his mark in the televised Great Edinburgh XCountry race against the USA and a European select side.

It’s a top class event and attracts a big crowd.

Teuten said: ‘I’m feeling good. It’s a bit of a daunting race with 27 fantastic athletes there so there’s nowhere to hide.’

He said: ‘I watched the event on TV last year. To get my first GB vest in December was good and to get a second one is great as well.’
