BikeNZ will send just five riders to the world track cycling champs in Belarus later this month.

The team is based around the rising sprint squad of Simon van Velthooven, Ethan Mitchell, Sam Webster and Eddie Dawkins

They'll be joined by Olympic team pursuit medallist Aaron Gate, who won the individual pursuit, scratch race, points race and Madison at last week's nationals.

No women have been selected, with world champion Alison Shanks unavailable through injury.
