ACE JASE LEADS WORLD CHARGE
THREE-TIME Olympic champion Jason Kenny
leads a near-full-strength Great Britain squad to the opening Track World Cup event of the season in Mexico next month.
Kenny, who missed last week’s European Track Championships, returns alongside Phil Hindes in the men’s sprint squad for the Guadalajara event, which takes place from November 8 to 9.
Jess Varnish is in the women’s sprint squad, although Becky James, the 2013 double world champion, is absent with a knee problem.
The 17-strong team includes 10 recently crowned European champions, including double gold medallists Katie Archibald and Laura Trott.
Sir Bradley Wiggins is not in the squad but is expected to compete in the second World Cup of the season in London in early December ahead of the 2015 Track World Championships in Paris next February.
British Cycling technical director Shane Sutton said: “We won eight medals at the European Track Championships and our aim is now to build on this and carry the momentum on to the world stage.”
