Kadeena Cox has not been included among the riders British Cycling has announced will be on the Great Britain Para-cycling programme for 2017.

She has been left off due her participation in reality television show "The Jump" on Channel 4.

Her position on the team "will be reviewed once her time on the show is complete and she has returned to full training, but the team is looking forward to welcoming her back", British Cycling claimed.

Her participation in "The Jump" means she will miss the International Cycling Union (UCI) Para-cycling Track World Championships in Los Angeles, which are due to take place between March 2 and 5.

The 25-year-old, winner of Paralympic gold medals in athletics and cycling at Rio 2016, has also had her UK Sport funding suspended by British Athletics while she trains and competes in the show.

The programme, which sees novice celebrities learn and then compete in several winter sports, including ski jumping and bobsleigh, is due to take place over six weeks beginning on February 5.

Great Britain’s most successful female Paralympian Dame Sarah Storey has been selected and will lead the women’s endurance programme.

She is joined by other Paralympic gold medallists Megan Giglia, Crystal Lane and Liz Saul.

Tandem stokers Neil Fachie, Sophie Thornhill, Lora Fachie, Steve Bate and James Ball are all retained alongside pilots Pete Mitchell, Helen Scott, Corrine Hall, Adam Duggleby and Craig Maclean.

Seven-time Paralympic gold medallist Jody Cundy is selected and is joined by his team sprint Paralympic gold medal winning team-mates Jon Allan Butterworth and Louis Rolfe.

Paralympic gold medallist Karen Darke will be hoping to become a world champion for the first time in her career, while David Stone, Craig McCann and Hannah Dines will continue to compete in the men's and women's T2 classification respectively.

Jon Gildea and Simon Price will both be aiming to improve on a 2016 that saw them stand on the podium at World Championships and World Cups respectively.

David Smith remains on the squad as he continues his recovery and rehabilitation from spinal surgery.

The Great Britain Para-cycling team will be hoping to build on a fantastic 2016.

British cyclists topped the medal tables at both the UCI Para-cycling Track World Championships in Montichiari, winning 18 medals.

They then dominated Rio 2016, winning 21 medals, including 12 gold.

"The last 12 months have been incredible for the team and topping the medal tables at the Paralympics and world championships was a brilliant achievement," said Great Britain Para-cycling head coach Jon Norfolk.

"However, we won’t be resting on our laurels and the focus of the programme is to maintain the momentum created and to repeat our success at Tokyo 2020.

"The squad we’ve named is full of Paralympic and world champions as well as a number of riders who we believe have the potential to improve and become medal competitive over the next four year cycle.

“With a World Championships on the track and road as well as a number of road World Cups it will be a busy year for the team and riders and staff are looking forward to the challenge ahead."
