Commonwealth Games bronze medallists Lauren Bate and Katy Marchant have been named in Great Britain’s squad for the opening 2018-19 UCI Track World Cup event, which starts in Paris on Friday.

Three-time Olympic team pursuit gold medallist Ed Clancy is also among those in the 14-strong team.

Katie Archibald, Elinor Barker, Laura Kenny and Jason Kenny come into the squad for the second event in Canada.

The six-stage series offers the chance to win Olympic qualifying points.

British team boss Stephen Park said four-time Olympic champion Laura Kenny forms part of an “embarrassment of riches” in the women’s squad, adding such a deep talent pool will “serve us well not just for 2020 but also for Paris in 2024”.

Round four of the six World Cup events will take place in London from 14-16 December.
