Team USN has confirmed five riders to compete at the final round of the UCI Track Cycling World Cup in Cali, Colombia, taking place 16-18 January 2015.

Great Britian Olympic Academy Programme athletes Manon Lloyd, Amy Roberts, Emily Nelson and Emily Kay will ride in USN colours alongside Wales' Ellie Coster joining the 11-strong Great Britain squad in Colombia. Wales' Lewis Oliva will compete for Great Britain in the Men's Sprint events.

Technical director Shane Sutton OBE said: “I am pleased with how the team has performed so far in this World Cup cycle and we’re well on track as to where we want to be in terms of qualifying places for the Olympics.

“This has eased the pressure on us slightly and has enabled us to select a younger team for the final round, giving the Academy an excellent opportunity to step up and race at this level.”
