This Saturday – Revolution 56

The penultimate round of the Revolution Series will be the first track event of the Olympic year, taking place at the National Cycling Centre on 2 January 2016. Some of Great Britain’s key cycling stars including Mark Cavendish and Laura Trott will be in attendance to what is looking to be a sell-out event.


A top class international field will be in force to challenge our GB hopefuls both in the Women’s and Male Sprint events. Recently crowned World Omnium Champion, Kirsten Wild from the Netherlands joins the likes of Laura Trott, Elinor Barker and Emily Kay in a 24 strong Elite Women’s line-up.

European Team Sprint Champion, Robert Forstemann returns to the Revolution Series in Manchester and will take on National Sprint Champion Lewis Oliva, Matt Rotherham and Dominic Suozzi from the USA – click here to see the full rider list.

An action packed race programme will see a Madison included in the Elite Championship as well as Madison races for the HOY Future Stars as part of the afternoon session – click here to see the race programme.

There will also be a special Team Wiggins verses Great Britain race included in the evening programme. Cavendish who will lead the Great Britain quartet said before Christmas “I’ve been spending a fair bit of time on the track in Manchester, we’ve been doing squad sessions with the team pursuit boys twice a week.” He will be joined by Ollie Wood, Matt Gibson and Chris Latham. The Team Wiggins line-up includes Andy Tennant, Steven Burke, Jon Dibben and Owain Doull.


These riders will also feature in the Revolution Elite Championship where Doull and Dibben will be looking to continue their winning form for Team Wiggins following victory at round 4 in Glasgow. They will come up against a strong Team Sky pairing of Elia Viviani and Pete Kennaugh as well as current Championship leaders, Team Pedalsure, who will be represented by Andy Tennant and Chris Latham.

Grandstand tickets are sold out for the evening session at Round 5 with a limited number of track centre and standing tickets still available. All ticket types are available for the afternoon session and can be purchased online at or by calling See Tickets on 0844 854 2016.

The event will be televised live on Eurosport 1 between 20:00 and 22:00 (21:00 to 23:00 CET).
