Neil Fachie, a 10-time world champion, will reunite with Craig MacLean, a pairing that won double gold at the Commonwealth Games in 2014.

Aileen McGlynn will ride for Great Britain for the first time since 2012 alongside pilot Louise Haston. The duo claimed two silver medals for Team Scotland at Glasgow 2014.

This year’s world championships, which take place from March 2-5, also serve as the qualification event for the tandem events for visually impaired riders at the 2018 Commonwealth Games.
