Britain have named the full-strength team featuring several Olympic and world gold medallists meant for October’s European Track Championships in the Netherlands.

Women’s team pursuit champions Laura Trott, Dani King and Jo Rowsell and fellow endurance winners Ed Clancy and Steven Burke are in an 18-strong squad.

Jason Kenny, Phil Hindes and
Becky James are usually chasing more sprint titles.

GB Cycling’s Shane Sutton said: “We are sending a full team in preparation for [November’s] World Cup in Manchester. inch

The European Championships take place from 18-20 October in Apeldoorn.

Trott, King and Rowsell, who have gained world and Olympic titles as a trio in the 3km team quest, set a world record in the brand new 4km team pursuit with Elinor Barker to win the British title last week.

The quartet are joined by Katie Archibald, 20, who is making her debut in the women’s endurance squad whilst Jess Varnish,
who gained four sprint titles at the National Track Championships last week, can also be in the team.

British Cycling’s performance manager Sutton added: “It’s great to be able to welcome Katie Archibald towards the team, and it’s testament to the programme that we are able to continue to develop and expand our squad and present talented new riders.

“It’s the start of the season, so we don’t know where we’re at compared to the rest of the globe at this moment in time.

“However, we saw some strong results in the National Track Championships and we’re looking to be in good shape as a team so it will be interesting to see how that will stands up against some international competition. “
