Trott, 22, won two golds at London 2012 in the team pursuit and omnium while 26-year-old Kenny also topped the podium in team sprint and individual sprint.

Both are expected to be part of the British team for the Rio Olympics in 2016.

Trott, who had been suffering with a kidney infection, also claimed gold in a dramatic women’s 25km points race at the Glasgow Commonwealth Games in July this year.
