Hoy Returns to Revolution

It will be an eagerly anticipated appearance from Hoy who hasn’t featured
at Revolution since the first event of last season. On that occasion he dominated
the racing and the Scottish star is eager to return to the action,

“I’m really looking forward to it; it’s got a great atmosphere.
I’m usually in Australia at this time of year and miss it so it will be
good to see the Manchester crowd again.”

Hoy’s current form will make him a formidable opponent having won the
Keirin in the first two World Cups in Sydney and Beijing. As the reigning world
champion in the discipline Hoy is clearly the man to beat and has his sights
firmly set on Beijing,

“I’m really happy with my form; we’ve been concentrating
on getting points to qualify for the Olympics so we’re ahead of where
we need to be which is perfect.”

"The Keirin is quite an unpredictable event and it is not often that you
can get a string of consistent places," he added. "It is encouraging
that I can go unbeaten for so long but it is inevitable that it won’t go on
forever. I am getting more experienced and the longer it goes on, the better
it is for me.”

Revolution on January 12th will provide the next opportunity for Hoy to test
his unbeaten record as he faces up to a strong challenge from British stars
Craig MacLean, Jamie Staff and Ross Edgar as well as several top international

These riders will feature in an omnium competition including a Keirin, 200m
Time Trial, Sprint and Team Sprint.
