The 2016/17 Tissot UCI Track Cycling World Cup resumes this month, with back-to-back events in Colombia and the USA.

Following round three in Colombia, where Great Britain Cycling Team's Emily Nelson won omnium silver, a team of three riders head to Los Angeles for the final round of the season from 25-26 February.

Round four: Los Angeles

The 2016/17 Tissot UCI Track Cycling World Cup concludes in North America with the fourth round in Los Angeles.

Three British riders will be in action, with Olympic team pursuit champion Elinor Barker headlining the squad.

Barker makes her return to international competition, having been part of the successful Great Britain Cycling Team squad at the second round of the world cup in Apeldoorn last November, where she claimed gold in the points race.

The 22-year-old will take on the scratch race in Los Angeles, as well as teaming up with Senior Academy rider Ellie Dickinson in the Madison, hoping to follow in the footsteps of teammates Katie Archibald and Manon Lloyd, who claimed the first ever women’s Madison title at world level the world cup in Glasgow last year.

The final member of the British team in the USA will be Chris Latham, world cup silver medallist in the scratch race in Apeldoorn last year.

Latham will compete in the new, four-event omnium in Los Angeles, looking to follow up on the silver medal he won in that event in New Zealand in the 2015/16 world cup competition.
