US Paralympics have announced an 18-strong squad for the upcoming International Cycling Union (UCI) Para Cycling Track World Championships in Rio de Janeiro.
Four-time Paralympic medallist Joe Berenyi headlines the men's team and goes into the competition with good pedigree having claimed gold medals in the time trial, team sprint and scratch races at last year's competition.
Paralympian Chris Murphy will also be looking to repeat his one kilometre time trial success from the 2017 event.
Murphy will be joined by fellow Paralympian Billy Lister on the men's roster.
Four defending national champions have also been selected on the team in the form of James Crouse, Sean Culp, Jacob Waters and Justin Widhalm.
Nick Gibb, Todd Key, Jason Kimball, Stephen Pedone and Chester Triplett complete the 12-man team in the men's event.
Five of the six athletes selected on the women's team have Paralympic experience, including Jamie Whitmore and Shawn Morelli, who won the 500m time trial and four kilometre individual pursuit events respectively at last year's championships.
Jennifer Schuble, Samantha Bosco and Shawn Chesire are the other three Paralympians on the team along with Tela Crane, who failed to qualify for Rio 2016.
The United States finished top of the medal table at last year's UCI Para Cycling Track World Championships in Los Angeles with 10 gold, four silver and four bronze medals.
The 2018 UCI Para Cycling Track World Championships are taking place from March 22 to 25 at the velodrome built for the Rio 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
Located at the Barra Olympic Park, the velodrome, which was subject to a fire in July 2017, is one of the Rio 2016 venues where concerns have been expressed about legacy.
