SHE was one of the stars for the Australian team in Belgium last month, so it was no great surprise when national selectors gave Emilie Miller the nod for the 2019 UCI Para-cycling Road World Championships.
Reigning world champion hand cyclist Miller is one of 14 athletes selected to represent Australia at the titles, which will be staged in the Netherlands in September.
The Australian team will also contest the third round of the World Cup in Canada in August ahead of the World Championships.
Miller's selection adds to what has already been a stellar 2019 for the Bathurst talent.
She began the year by claiming double gold at the Cycling Australia Road Nationals, producing solid performances on the gruelling road race and time trial courses.
That earned Miller a spot in Australia's Para-Cycling World Cup squad which tackled the second round of the series in Ostend, Belgium in May.
There she won double gold for the time trial and road race, with her effort in the latter of those two one of the finest of her hand cycling career.
She covered the 32 kilometre course in one hour, 36 minutes, 55 seconds, averaging 19.879km/hr. That effort also moved her into the overall World Cup series lead for her classification.
"My road race was my best result for this competition and my best ever road race performance," Miller said.

Miller will again aim for a golden double in the Netherlands as she defends her road race and time trial rainbow jerseys.
But she can also earn valuable qualification points towards the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games, which will include events in her classification for the first time.
"Excited to say I've been named in the Australian team for the 2019 Para-cycling World Championships in the Netherlands," Miller said.
"Super pumped to head away with this awesome team."
The championships will be based in Emmen from September 12-15 and will see the Australian team compete against 200 of the world's best from 30 countries.
