The London World Cup is upon us, and the startlists for the team events have been revealed. There are no major surprises for GB with Varnish and Williamson going in the women’s team sprint, and Hindes, Kenny and Skinner for the men. The women’s pursuit sees a return for Jo Rowsell, alongside Trott, Archibald and Barker while the men go with Clancy, Burke, Tennant and Doull.
It’s great to see Wales through team Usn put out a squad for the women’s team pursuit with youngsters Ellie Coster, Manon Lloyd, Amy Roberts and Emily Kay. Cyclostats is not sure of Kay’s Welshness, but let’s not quibble.
Eleanor Richardson also gets a run out in the team sprint alongside Spaniard Gudane Araiz.
