British Cycling and Sky have today unveiled a new Sky Track Cycling jersey. The kit will be first worn in the Track Cycling World Cup in Manchester this weekend, although photos of it have been released in advance with Victoria Pendleton one of the models.
Sky Track Cycling is the new name for the Sky+HD team of last year. The team will include Victoria Pendleton and fellow sprinters Chris Hoy, Jason Kenny, Ross Edgar, Shanaze Reade and Matt Crampton.
The Adidas kit follows the basic blueprint of the Sky Pro Cycling jersey, but with red shoulders and arm-stripes. The Sky+HD team was first unveiled in October 2008, and this new kit represents the first team's makeover since then.
The British line-up for Manchester's event this weekend has been updated, as Rebecca Romero has withdrawn from the team pursuit with injury.
There will be two British teams taking part in the women's team pursuit. Wendy Houvenaghel, Joanna Rowsell and Sarah Storey will be riding in GB colours, and Katie Colclough, Claire Galloway, Dani King and Laura Trott will ride as the 100%ME team.
The men's GB team for the team pursuit will be made up of Steven Burke, Ed Clancy, Andy Tennant, Geraint Thomas and Bradley Wiggins. Ben Swift will ride the omnium.
Tickets for the event are almost sold out, although Cycling Weekly is giving a pair away in an online competition.
