    depends on the event, wikipedia the following....

    world 1000m TT champion

    world 1000m sprint champion

    world keirin champion

    world 4000m individual/team pursuit champion/s

    world Madison champions

    Gent 6-Day winners

    this should give you a pretty good idea.

    I might be looking in the wrong place, but nothing on wikipedia gives body measurements.

    but it might give you pictures...

    There's also a paper out there somewhere from the Australian Institute of Sport that gives BMI of elite riders vs. event length for the track. I'm smack at the transition between kilo rider and pursuiter, but if I trained a lot would fall into pursuiter unless I lifted a lot of weights.

    I wouldn't worry about what height or weight you are.

    At amateur level, training > genetics.

    Probably
