Cavendish gets strong lead-out train
The 266-km course from Copenhagen to Rudersdal is mostly flat and is likely to suit the sprinters on the last day of the Sept. 19-25 championships.
Welshman Thomas has been dubbed by Team Sky sports director Sean Yates as the world's best lead-out man, while Millar and Wiggins's power could prove important in the final kilometres.
Tour of Spain runner-up Chris Froome has also been named on the team along with Jeremy Hunt, Steve Cummings and Ian Stannard.
Pooley will also take part in the time trial event.
