Katie Archibald and Elinor Barker will line up a chance to take part in the first-ever Olympic women’s Madison when they pair up to take on the event in Glasgow this weekend.
With Laura Trott, Neah Evans and Emily Nelson waiting in the wings, Great Britain has plenty of options for Tokyo 2020, where two of the five riders for the team pursuit will take part in the first women's Madison in the Games.
"I think we're in a really good place," said Barker. "We've still got a few races left to determine the final pairing. Everyone wants it and I think we've got a number of capable riders."
Archibald looks to have a good chance of being one of the pair for Tokyo, having won World Cup, World Championship, national, and Six day titles with Barker and Kenny, Nelson, Barker and Evans respectively. In the last of those, in London last month, Archibald and Evans won with Barker and Kenny in second place.”
This weekend it's with Elinor and the last time we rode together at a home World Cup we did so to great success, so I'm really looking forward to it,” said Archibald.
