British Cycling confirms a strong line-up for the Revolution Series

Thu 23 Jul 2015

British Cycling has confirmed its intention to have a full strength Great British Cycling Team for the first round of the Revolution Series, taking place at the Arena on 14 – 16 August.

The Revolution Series will be an important racing opportunity for the Great Britain Cycling Team in preparation for Rio. It is expected that current Olympic champions Laura Trott, Joanna Rowsell Shand, Jason Kenny, Phil Hindes, Ed Clancy and Steven Burke will be racing for UCI qualification points, as well as riders who have already made their mark on the world stage since London 2012 such as Katie Archibald and Elinor Barker.

Technical director Shane Sutton OBE said:

“The Revolution Series provides the team with a valuable chance to earn UCI qualification points ahead of the Rio Olympic Games, and as such you can expect every Great Britain Cycling Team track rider to be competing at the Derby round in August - barring injury. The team enjoy racing at this level in the UK as the support of a home crowd really boosts morale and spurs them on, which is exactly what we saw in London 2012, and as such you can expect to see some exciting racing from the country’s best riders.”
