Sir Chris Hoy, Bradley Wiggins and Rebecca Romero will miss the World Track Championships in Poland, so Victoria Pendleton will be the biggest name in the squad, which was finalised by British Cycling's management team yesterday and is set to be announced on Monday.

Sir Chris is ruled out by the hip injury he sustained in a crash during the Keirin final at the World Cup in Copenhagen. Wiggins is concentrating on the road this season, and Romero has not raced a bike on the track since the Beijing Olympics.
