British Cycling has announced its squad for the next round of the UCI Track World Cup, which will take place in Aguascalientes, Mexico, over December 5-7 2013.

The Great Britain team is a no compromise selection of the nation's top track talent as we edge towards the 2014 Track World Championships and, ultimately, qualification for the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio.

Scotland's Katie Archibald joins the women's endurance line-up after her impressive performance at the opening round of the 2013-14 Track World Cup in Manchester in early November. Archibald, 20, rode for the Braveheart Scottish team and netted silver in the scratch race and bronze in the individual pursuit. She was part of Britain's gold-medal winning line-up at the European Track Championships in October.

"The World Cup in Manchester has given us a steady start to the season - we got some good results there and it also highlighted some aspects the team needs to work on," said Shane Sutton, Great Britain performance manager.

"We're keen to build on that in the next round and earn as many qualifying points for the world championships as we can so we're sending a strong squad over to Mexico for the next round."

Great Britain put in a strong show in the endurance events in Manchester, winning the men's and women's team pursuits, in addition to Joanna Rowsell taking the women's individual pursuit.

However, Germany could not be beaten in the sprint disciplines with Kristina Vogel winning three golds in the sprint, team sprint and keirin. Robert Forstemann won the men's sprint and assisted in the team sprint victory.
