Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Classified -

ASH­FORD’S Olympic cycling cham­pion Jamie Staff has been in­cluded in the Great Bri­tain squad for the World Track Cham­pi­onships in Poland, which start in Pruskow next Wed­nes­day. Staff (pic­tured) won gold in the Team Sprint at the Bei­jing Olympics last sum­mer and, with Olympic team-mate Sir Chris Hoy ruled out the World Cham­pi­onships by in­jury, Staff will be­come the most ex­pe­ri­enced mem­ber of the GB squad in Poland. He will be joined in the men’s Team Sprint team by Ross Edgar, Matthew Cramp­ton, Ja­son Kenny and David Daniell. Staff said: “It’s ob­vi­ously a shame that Chris won’t be rid­ing, but we have got real strength in depth in the squad now and this is a chance for some­one else to come through.”
