News – Revolution to be Live on TV

The Revolution series, taking place across five events in Manchester, Glasgow and London, will be live on Eurosport. The 2015/16 series will provide important preparation and UCI qualification points for leading British and international cyclists as they build towards the Rio Olympics next year.

Following the announcement last week of record cycling audiences, the acquisition of the Revolution Series provides additional cycling content as the road season draws to a close and further reinforces Eurosport’s position as the home of cycling.


David Kerr, Managing Director of British Eurosport said: “Having been to previous Revolution events, I know what a fantastic atmosphere there is in the velodrome and we hope to be able to bring plenty of exciting racing and a taste of that atmosphere to cycling fans who cannot get along to the events.”

“As the road cycling season draws to a close, it is good to be able to offer cycling fans a strong schedule of both track cycling and cyclo cross to reinforce our position as the Home of Cycling.”

James Pope, CEO of Revolution organisers FACE Partnership said: “We are very excited to be able to provide live coverage of Revolution for the first time. We’ve managed to build an audience of almost a million viewers last season so the new partnership with Eurosport will help us grow this significantly and reach more fans than ever before in the UK and internationally.”

The Revolution events will be shown live on Eurosport’s pan European network to reach 54 countries and will also be distributed worldwide. The first event takes place on 24th October at the National Cycling Centre in Manchester with live coverage on Eurosport 1 from 18:45 to 21:00 BST (19:45 to 22:00 CET).

The series then continues in London on 14th November before heading to the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome in Glasgow on 28th November with the final two rounds in Manchester in January 2016.
