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.
Cycling Weekly will be covering the Track World Cup with daily online updates.

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on CyclingWeekly.com, he worked almost single-handedly on the Cycling Weekly website in its early days. His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success. Without him, CyclingWeekly.com would certainly not exist on the size and scale that it enjoys today. Nigel sadly passed away, following a brave battle with a cancer-related illness, in 2018. He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, n exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
