A 22-strong Great Britain Cycling Team will travel to Apeldoorn for the 2018 UCI Track Cycling World Championships from 28 February - 4 March.
Seven Olympic champions have been named in the squad with Laura and Jason Kenny making their return to elite competition - while reigning world champions Katie Archibald and Elinor Barker will look to retain their rainbow jerseys.
Laura Kenny makes her first appearance for her country since the Rio Olympics as part of a strong women’s endurance squad for the world championships.
Kenny - who gave birth to her first child Albie in August last year - is part of a six-woman endurance squad, with all riders competing for a spot in the team pursuit.
Alongside Kenny, Emily Kay, Emily Nelson, Ellie Dickinson, Elinor Barker and Katie Archibald have been selected - with the Great Britain Cycling Team looking to win the title for a seventh time and the first time since 2014.
Archibald will hope to see her terrific form continue in Apeldoorn as she takes on several events, in addition to the team pursuit.
The 2017 omnium world champion will defend her title in the Netherlands and will also line up in the scratch race and the Madison.
Archibald will be joined for the Madison by Elinor Barker - following the duo’s gold medal-winning performance in the event at the Tissot UCI Track Cycling World Cup in Manchester in November last year.
Barker will also compete in the points race where she will start among the favourites after winning the world title in the event in Hong Kong last April.
Kay and Dickinson are also set to take on the gruelling individual pursuit, an event that hasn’t seen a British medallist since Joanna Rowsell Shand won an incredible gold in Colombia in 2014.
Three riders will make their elite world championships debut for the Great Britain Cycling Team in Apeldoorn, with Senior Academy rider Ethan Hayter and non-programme riders Dan Bigham and Charlie Tanfield joining the squad.
It has been a sensational winter for Bigham and Tanfield who have competed at world cup events for Team KGF, winning gold in the team pursuit in Belarus last month with Tanfield also taking gold in the individual pursuit.
Hayter and Tanfield are part of a six-man team pursuit squad, alongside Ed Clancy, Kian Emadi, Mark Stewart and Ollie Wood, with Tanfield doubling up to also take on the individual pursuit alongside Bigham.
Stewart - who won bronze in the Madison at the Tissot UCI Track Cycling World Cup in Canada in December - will also compete in the points race, an event in which he won silver at the same world cup last year.
Ollie Wood will bid for success in the men’s omnium while Chris Latham will compete in the scratch race, having won bronze in the event in Hong Kong last year.
A final selection for the men’s Madison positions will be made nearer to the competition, with two from Hayter, Wood, Latham and Stewart to be chosen.
Senior Academy rider Lauren Bate is set to make her elite world championships debut in Apeldoorn as she pairs up with Olympic bronze medallist Katy Marchant in the team sprint.
Bate is in good form, having set two new personal bests during her maiden world cup appearance for the Great Britain Cycling Team in Minsk last month.
It is set to be a busy week for Marchant in the Netherlands. In addition to the team sprint, the Olympian will also ride in the keirin, sprint and 500m time trial, looking to add to her individual honours having won silver in the keirin at the UCI Track Cycling World Cup in Canada last year.
Great Britain’s joint most-successful Olympian Jason Kenny makes his return to the Great Britain Cycling Team at the UCI Track Cycling World Championships in Apeldoorn.
Fresh from winning a national title in the team sprint at the HSBC UK | National Track Championships in January, Kenny will hope to line up in the same event in the Netherlands.
Five riders are in the team sprint squad, with Kenny’s fellow Olympic champion Phil Hindes also selected, alongside young trio Ryan Owens, Joe Truman and Jack Carlin.
Hindes will also race in the sprint, as will Carlin - who won bronze in the event at the world cup round in Canada last December, and is also set to race in the keirin.
Truman will also represent the Great Britain Cycling Team in the keirin as well as the 1km time trial - with Olympic team sprint champion Callum Skinner also taking on the kilo.
