    Background: Top cyclists from all over the world are now in final training for the 1972 World Championships, to be hold in Marseille and Gap Between July 29 and August 6.

    And as competitors try their muscles and machines around the gruelling 15 kilometre (nine mile) circuit, through the streets of Marseille and neighbouring areas, a huge battery of television cameras is being set up to convey the racing to all continents.

    With the ladies' race of four laps (60 km, 37 miles) as a curtain-raiser on August 5, the main race over 18 laps (272 km, 167 miles) takes place the following day.

    Most of the favourites are French, although there are some very strong challengers this year from Japan, and the Soviet Union.
