Lizzie Armitstead will not be participating in the UCI Track World Championships in Apeldoorn, Netherlands, later this month. British Cycling has announced that Armitstead is suffering from a side strain, which prevents her from competing.
According to the team's doctor, "she is responding well to treatment and a full recovery is expected, but not in time for the World Championships."
Laura Trott has been selected to represent Great Britain in the omnium. The line-up for the women's team pursuit will be confirmed next week.
