Olympic gold medallists Victoria Pendleton, Jason Kenny and Jamie Staff were at the Manchester velodrome on Wednesday sporting the new black and blue kit of team sponsors Sky+HD.

The track sprint trio were preparing for this weekend’s Track World Cup round (October 31-November 2) at the velodrome with team-mates Ross Edgar and Shanaze Reade. Only one Sky+HD squad member was absent – triple Olympic gold medallist Chris Hoy.

The Sky+HD team is being run by British Cycling alongside its Great Britain squad, which sports the traditional national kit.

The satellite telecommunications company became official partners of Team Great Britain in July, and the Sky logo first appeared on GB riders kit during the road World Championships in Varese, Italy, in September.
