Llaneras and Marvulli will be sporting their rainbow jerseys along with Britain’s
Bradley Wiggins who holds the world title for both the Pursuit and Team Pursuit.
With Junior World Champions Thierry Jollet, Kristina Vogel, Christian Lyte,
Dave Daniell and Pete Mitchell in the sprint racing there will be no less than
8 world champions on the Manchester boards this Saturday.
The six day specialists will be making the trip to Revolution off the back
of the Munich six, won by Marvulli with team mate Bruno Risi. Both Marvulli
and Iljo Keisse have shown great winning form so far this season with Keisse
taking victory in the Amsterdam six and Marvulli preceding the Munich win with
victory in Dortmund.
These riders will have a chance to put a strong British field to the test in
a packed endurance programme. Highlights of the evening will include a 20km
Points Race, 1km Madison Time Trial and Team Pursuit challenge where emerging
British stars Andy Tennant, Jonathan Bellis and Peter Kennaugh will take on
experienced Spanish trio, Sergei Escobar, Miguel Alazamora and Antonio Tauler.
To intensify the action the sprint racing will feature a clash between Great
Britain, France and Germany as the worlds best junior riders come head to head
for the first time since the Junior World Championships earlier this year. With
national pride at stake and Revolution the focus for the season the junior sprinters
will be racing full gas guaranteeing plenty of excitement for the home crowds.
