Great Britain will be represented by the same squad of riders who recently competed at the European Track Championships in Apeldoorn, with the exception of Katie Archibald who will compete for her trade team in Manchester.

The GB team won eight medals in Apeldoorn, and also set the new world record in the Women’s Team Pursuit, posting a time of 4:26.556 in the new four-women over four kilometres format. The squad for the World Cup in Manchester includes Olympic champions Jason Kenny, Phil Hindes, Steven Burke, Ed Clancy, Dani King, Joanna Rowsell and Laura Trott, as well as current two-time World Champion Becky James.

Performance Manager Shane Sutton said: “We came home from the European Track Championships with three gold, two silver and three bronze medals, which has given us a solid start to the season. We’ll be looking to build on that over the next couple of weeks, and I’m hoping to see some good performances across the board at the World Cup in Manchester.”
