Games, but this time she will take to the track and is looking forward to the challenge: “I’m excited to be returning to Glasgow after the amazing memories this summer at the Commonwealth Games. This time it will be on the track and I’m looking forward to racing at the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome. I was there last season commentating on the TV so it will be good to be part of the action this time round.”


Armitstead will face tough competition from rival Sarah Storey, who recently became National Points Race Champion beating Laura Trott, Elinor Barker and Katie Archibald by more than 20 points at the National Track Championships in September.
