Paralympic champions Darren Kenny, Jody Cundy and Sarah Storey have been named in the GB team for next month's Para-Cycling Track World Championships.

The trio form part of a 15-strong team for the event which takes place in Manchester from 6-8 November.

Also included are fellow Beijing gold medallists Mark Bristow, Simon Richardson and Aileen McGlynn.

Newcomers Neil Fachie, Lora Turnham and Russ White will all make their world track debuts.

Scot Fachie, who switched from athletics last year, will ride in the tandem events with the experienced Barney Storey.

Storey won gold in Beijing with Anthony Kappes but Kappes is not competing as his new pilot former Olympian Jason Queally is not eligible for international competition until next year.

In the women's tandem events, Turnham and her pilot Rebecca Rimmington, who won bronze in the road race at the Road World Championships in Italy in September, will also be hoping to add to their medal haul.

Gareth Sheppard, performance manager for Para-Cycling is looking forward to racing on home soil.

"We are very excited with the blend of the team and will complete our final preparations for the event in Newport," he said.

GB team: Mark Bristow (LC1), Jody Cundy (LC2), Neil Fachie (B/VI - pilot Barney Storey), Simon Jackson (B/VI - pilot David Readle), Darren Kenny (CP3), Aileen McGlynn (B/VI - pilot Ellen Hunter), Simon Richardson (LC2), Sarah Storey (LC1), Lora Turnham (B/VI - pilot Rebecca Rimmington), Rik Waddon (CP3), Russ White (LC1).
