Andy Tennant has been added to the Great Britain squad for next month's Track Cycling World Championships, British Cycling have confirmed.

Sixteen riders will now travel to Melbourne on Friday for final preparations for the World Championships, which take place from April 4 to 8 at the Hisense Arena.

Tennant has been added to the men's endurance squad, which also includes Steven Burke, Ed Clancy, Pete Kennaugh, Ben Swift and Geraint Thomas, and will be vying for a place in the four-man, four-kilometre team pursuit.

British Cycling performance director Dave Brailsford said: "Training over the last couple of weeks has gone really well. Andy has justified his inclusion in the squad and will travel to Melbourne."
