Elinor Barker and Joe Kelly on GB track team

Junior time trial world champion Elinor Barker replaces Joanna Rowsell in Britain’s line-up for the Glasgow round of the UCI Track World Cup this weekend.

Barker joins Olympic gold medallists Laura Trott and Dani King at the Sir Chris Hoy velodrome to contest the women’s team pursuit.

Joe Kelly has also been drafted in to replace Steven Burke in the men’s endurance line-up.

“It’s a fantastic opportunity for these two youngsters to step in and experience the GB competition environment at an elite level,” said GB performance director David Brailsford.

No reasons were given in British Cycling’s statement for Rowsell and Burke’s non participation.

The Glasgow round of the 2012-13 UCI Track World Cup takes place from Friday November 16 to Sunday November 18. The event will host Olympic team pursuit gold medallist Ed Clancy‘s debut in the team sprint alongside Philip Hindes and Jason Kenny.
