British Cycling have unveiled the 19 riders who will be competing in the opening round of the Track World Cup (October 30-November 1) in Manchester.
Chris Hoy, Victoria Pendleton and Jamie Staff spearhead a star-studded sprint lineup racing in Team Sky+HD colours.
Meanwhile, Team GB can boast a host of Olympic medallists in Steven Burke, Ed Clancy, Wendy Houvenaghel, Jason Kenny, Chris Newton and Geraint Thomas.
Lizzie Armitstead, a Track World Cup star last year, also makes the switch from road to track here at Manchester.
