Hayden Godfrey has been withdrawn from New Zealand's track cycling team for the Manchester World Cup and the upcoming World Championships in Mallorca for medical reasons.

Head track coach Terry Gyde, and BikeNZ medical staff have advised that it is Godfrey's best interest to forgo these competitions while he gets further medical evaluations so that he can return to full health in time for the 2008 Olympics in Beijing.

Jesse Sergent will replace Godfrey for the Manchester World Cup, and then stay on at the New Zealand track team's training camp in Spain in preparation for the track world championships at the end of March.
