    Laura Kenny has withdrawn from today’s Omnium because of illness and will be replaced by fellow Olympic champion Katie Archibald.

    “I haven’t been feeling right all week - for reasons we’re not sure of," said Kenny, who is a double Olympic champion in the Omnium. "My performances in the team pursuit over the last two days have been well off where I have been in training over the last two weeks.

    "It was decided that it was better that I didn’t compete and give someone else the opportunity. I think Katie will do a brilliant job.”

    “I know Laura is disappointed she can no longer compete out here in Poland, but it's the right decision for herself and her team-mates," said Stephen Park, performance director for British Cycling.

    "Katie deserves credit for stepping in and I’m confident she will put in a strong performance in today’s omnium event.”

  2. What are the Track Cycling World Championships?

    The Track Cycling World Championships have been held every year since 1893 and see the best indoor cyclists from across the globe come together to compete in ten disciplines over five days.

    Events range from the gruelling omnium, which sees competitors involved in four different races in a single day, to the lightning-fast time trials.

    The winners of each event are crowned world champions and awarded the iconic rainbow jersey, which they can wear during races for the next year to mark their achievement.

    The event is being held for the second time in Pruzskow, near the Polish capital of Warsaw, and Great Britain’s 21-strong team will be hoping to improve upon their two gold medals won in the 2018 edition in the Netherlands.

    Britons competing this year include former champions Laura and Jason Kenny, reigning madison champions Katie Archibald and Emily Nelson, and Vicky Williamson, returning to the velodrome nearly three years after sustaining serious injuries in a horrific crash.

    From young children on stabilisers, through to adults going for long countryside rides, cycling is for everyone. Sick of being stuck in traffic? Cycling to work is also one of the easiest ways to fit exercise into your daily routine. There are also a number of cycling clubs around the UK, where coffee and cake stops are as important as the route you ride!

    Just hop on a bike and you're good to go. British Cycling, Scottish Cycling, Welsh Cycling and Cycle NI have information about clubs and racing tracks, and the Breeze programme for women cyclists offers a range of safe and sociable cycle routes for all abilities. If you don't have access to a bike there are hundreds of bike rental facilities across the UK.
