Revolution – 12

The final Revolution of season 3 will be held on Saturday 18th February at the Manchester Velodrome and with an all star rider list from the six day circuit we can expect some of the fastest and most action packed racing so far.

The six day season will finish in Copenhagen next week allowing many of the stars the chance to fight it out one more time at Revolution 12. Already confirmed is the powerful pairing of Matthew Gilmore and Iijo Keisse. No strangers to Revolution, Keisse and Gilmore always ensure the racing is intense and with two wins and two second places in the sixes this season they are in awesome form.

Joining them will be Franco Marvulli and Peter Schep who have also been tearing up the track this season. It will be the first time Schep has raced the Revolution and the Dutch star is looking forward to the experience,

“I’ve heard a lot about Revolution from the other riders and it sounds like a great event. I really wanted to come and race so I’m ready for it and really looking forward to the experience.”

With many of the elite GB riders already in Australia for the Commonwealth Games it will be down to British stars Rob Hayles and Chris Newton to defend national pride against these international challengers. World Champions Hayles and Newton will make a formidable pairing and with preparations going well for the Games they are both ready for some serious racing,

“Everything is going really well at the moment and the form is good so I’ll be well prepared for the racing at Revolution 12”, commented Hayles. “It will be good to get the opportunity to see how well I’m going in the races especially against some of the top six day guys so I’m well up for it.”

Hayles and Newton will be joined by Russell and Dean Downing as well as the up and coming GB riders who have performed superbly this season. With more international names to be announced as well as details of the sprint competition Revolution 12 is set to end the season in style.
