Olympic omnium champion Elia Viviani (Team Sky) was among the star attractions at the inaugural Revolution Champions League, which saw seven WorldTour teams competing on the track alongside the top domestic teams from the Revolution UK Championship.
Viviani paired up with London 2012 team pursuit gold medallist Peter Kennaugh for the opening round in Manchester, ensuring Team Sky had plenty of track pedigree on show at the National Cycling Centre.
And Viviani was hard to miss out on the track, thanks to the stunning custom Pinarello Maat track bike he was riding for the three sessions.
The metallic blue aero frame had no shortage of gold touches, while a gold helmet and gold shoes ensured the Italian’s Rio 2016 achievements, where he beat Britain’s Mark Cavendish to omnium gold, did not go unnoticed.
And despite being in the middle of the off-season for the road teams on show, Viviani and Kennaugh fared best of the WorldTour riders in Manchester, finishing fourth with 102 points between them.
Team-mates Ian Stannard and Andy Fenn took over for the final round in London as Team Sky went on to finish the inaugural competition in eighth place, with Ed Clancy and Jon Mould securing top spot for JLT-Condor.
