With a month to go until the Tissot UCI Track Cycling World Cup returns to the Lee Valley Velopark in Stratford, the Great Britain squad for the next round in Berlin has been announced.

Olympic champions Katie Archibald, Ed Clancy, Phil Hindes, Jason Kenny and Laura Kenny are set to compete in Germany, having already won nine World Cup medals between them so far this season.

Lining up alongside the Olympic champions are reigning world champions Kian Emadi, Ethan Hayter, Charlie Tanfield and Emily Nelson, while senior academy rider and current national road race champion Jess Roberts is set to make her debut appearance for the Great Britain at a World Cup event.

Looking ahead to Berlin, Roberts said: “I’m really excited to be representing Great Britain at this level.

“The women’s endurance squad is so strong, it feels such a privilege to be a part of it, but I’ve been training hard for this and I’m looking forward to lining up alongside them in the team pursuit.”

Performance director Stephen Park OBE said: “The squad have got their 2018/19 Tissot UCI Track Cycling World Cup series campaign off to an impressive start, winning six medals in Paris and nine medals in Canada to take the overall winner’s trophy in each round.

“I’m confident the team we are sending to Berlin will continue this momentum and build on our strong start to qualifying valuable Olympic points.

“With today marking exactly one month to go until the squad have the opportunity to compete on home soil in London, there’s a real excitement building and we’re ready to put on a good show for the home crowd.”
