SWINDON Robins pair Troy Batchelor and Peter Kildemand have both been called up for the World Cup this afternoon.

Batchelor was always expected to make the Aussie team, and joins 2012 world champion Chris Holder, Darcy Ward and Robins asset Jason Doyle in the side to face Alun Rossiter's Great Britain, USA and Italy at King's Lynn on July 26.

Kildemand's selection was less clear-cut, but his displays both in the European Championship and the Danish GP have been enough to see him picked.

He joins former Swindon skipper Hans Andersen, Robins asset Mads Korneliussen and experienced campaigner Bjarne Pedersen in a suprising looking side, with the likes of Nicki Pedersen, Niels-Kristian Iversen, Kenneth Bjerre and Michael Jepsen Jensen overlooked.

The clue is at the top when you open the article, with the word SPEEDWAY in capitals. None of the articles make sense until you open them!
