Sir Bradley Wiggins, Laura Trott and Joanna Rowsell Shand headline the Great Britain squad for the first round of the UCI Track World Cup in Cali, Colombia, this weekend.

Ten of the 17 riders named in the squad returned from the recent European Track Championships with a medal, as Britain topped the standings in Grenchen, Switzerland.

Wiggins retains his place in the team pursuit squad that won gold in Grenchen, with Owain Doull, Andy Tennant, Jon Dibben and Steven Burke alongside him, while Trott, Rowsell Shand, Ciara Horne, Katie Archibald and Elinor Barker make up the women's endurance team.

Both the men's and women's sprint squads failed to impress at the Europeans, with the riders coming home empty handed. With just 10 months to go before the Olympic Games, the likes of Jason Kenny, Philip Hindes and Jess Varnish will be looking to up their games in Cali.
