British Cycling has today announced the team of 29 Junior and Under 23 riders who will represent GB at the forthcoming Under 23 UEC European Track Championships taking place in Portugal from 26th - 31st July 2011.

Current elite World Champions Dani King and Laura Trott have made selection along with Sam Harrison and Jess Varnish, both of whom have won Gold medals at elite-level World Cups in the 2010-2011 season.

Speaking of the selection, Performance Manager Shane Sutton said: "We're sending a large team of riders out to Portugal, all of whom we believe are capable of performing well at European level. The size of the squad, and the fact that some riders haven't made selection this time, is a testament to the success and strength of our Olympic Academy and Olympic Development Programmes and means we're in a good position looking to London 2012 and beyond."
