Olympic silver medallists Craig MacLean and Ross Edgar head a strong sprinters’ line-up for Revolution 31 on Saturday December 11.
The series returns to the Manchester Velodrome for the third time this season, with Tuen Mulder and rising stars Dave Daniell and Roy Van Den Berg also in the line-up.
The team competition is finely poised with Maxgear, on 18 points, currently leading Edgar’s Team Sky by just two points. Le Col and Motorpoint share third spot on 14 points.
CHEP captain MacLean, team sprint silver medallist from Sydney 2000, returns to Revolution for the first time this campaign after racing as a pilot with the Paralympics squad and admits he may struggle to find his best form.
“We’ve had a bit of an odd season in the Paralympics squad as our World Championships, which were meant to be held around now, have been postponed,” said MacLean, who last year captained Slicks to the team title.
“It’s now in the middle of March, so I’ve had a bit of downtime and an injury, but I’m working hard for Revolution 31 to support Team CHEP. Revolution will be a good test of where I am, and great preparation for my championships.
“I’ll do my best to score a few points for CHEP. Teams can often pick up some valuable points from the sprinters, but with the introduction of some riders, they’re often unknown quantities at this time of year, so I’ll be keeping an eye out and doing the best I can for the team.”
