Dylan Kennett, Pieter Bulling and newcomers Nick Kergozou and Aaron Gate will defend New Zealand's team pursuit gold medal at the Track Cycling World Championships in London.

Marc Ryan and Alex Frame have been overlooked despite being part of the team that grabbed a slice of history in Paris last year.

Gate was the 2013 omnium world champion and took home bronze with the team pursuit at the London Olympics.

Head coach Dayle Cheatley says Frame, will compete in the scratch race, after proving himself again at nationals.

The world champs get underway tonight.
