Another Winter closes in and the draw of the velodrome is too much to ignore. After taking in the London Six Day last year we swapped it out for the Revolution Series this year. With the opening round down in Lee Valley and the final to come in Manchester, just 6 weeks after, we will be getting closely acquainted with the cycling stars once more. Arguably the cream of the crop were to be found in the Women’s races with Lizzie Deignan making a rare excursion from the road to take on the likes Dani Rowe (nee King), Katie Archibald and Elinor Barker (and that is just the Brits).

Revolution Series Rd5 Manchester (11)Our first visit to the National cycling centre and the event everyone was waiting for was the special GB v Team Wiggins team pursuit which took place in the evening session. Team Wiggins would go on to win. There was all the usual fun too with two madison races, featuring Mark Cavendish prominently in both with one win, a whole suite of races for Hoy Future Stars Boys and Girls along with the fantastic Revolution Longest Lap.

This one had a bit more to offer than usual though as in the build-up to the Rio Olympics this was an early opportunity to start building up valuable UCI qualification points and it showed. The highlight was always set to be the madison which would see Bradley Wiggins and Mark Cavendish reunited for the event they last rode together, on their way to the 2008 World Championship. They did not fail to deliver! Read More »

Revolution Series R5 (102)After our first trip to the Lee valley Velodrome back in December 2014 we were back for round 5 of the Revolution Series where elite teams compete over a series of disciplines to earn points and ultimately they gain enough to win the series. With each team made up of two riders the Madison style events feature prominently and of course the iconic longest lap. Add to the mix UCI class sprinting, womens races and stars of the future (boys & girls) and there was a whole lot going on. The main results of the night were Ed Clancy and Oli Wood of JLT Condor dominating the Elite events, whilst Laura Trott won both races she started. Read More »
