German-born Philip Hindes has been included in Great Britain's squad for April's Track Cycling World Championships in Melbourne, British Cycling announced yesterday.

Hindes has been included in the men's sprint squad at the expense of Ross Edgar, who came back from injury at the World Cup event in London last week.

The British Cycling performance director, Dave Brailsford, said: "In London, Ross was in the early stages of recovering from injury and we think the best option for him is to focus on training over the next few months. This does not mean we have ruled him out of the Olympic Games."
