Who will race for Great Britain at next week?s World Track Championships in Manchester?

Although several riders have been nominated for many of the events in order to cover all possible eventualities, such as illness or injury, there are options preferred by the British Cycling management team.

As it stands with a week to go until the championships get underway, this is how Cycling Weekly understands Great Britain will line-up for each of the events.

For more details and an assessment of Britain?s gold medal hopes in each event, see Thursday?s Cycling Weekly.
