Things are building up for a clash of the titans at Revolution 7 on January 29th as the French and British sprint teams go head to head in a Team Sprint grand finale. The British trio of Chris Hoy, Jason Queally and Craig MacLean were rampant at the Manchester World Cup taking the gold medal in the team sprint. Craig MacLean was back to winning form riding sub 18 second first laps for the heats and final despite having cracked his rib in the heats of the Japanese Keirin.
Craig MacLean is recovering well from his injury and is looking forward to facing the French at Revolution 7, stating that;
Confidence is clearly riding high in the British camp but the French won’t be defeated easily. Arnaud Tournant will be one of the star attractions at Revolution 7 and will be joined by two excellent French sprinters, Francois Pervis and Gregory Bauge. After a strong performance at the Moscow World Cup Bauge finished 3rd in the Japanese Keirin and 4th in the sprint in Manchester proving he is a man in form. Tournant too will be a formindable opponent and is eager to return to Revolution following his appearance at Revolution 3.
The sprint line up doesn’t stop there though with sprinters from Germany, Belgium and Ireland all competing including the 2000 Sprint World Champion, Jan van Eijden. Other top British sprinters such as Ross Edgar, Barney Storey and Matt Crampton will also bolster the domestic field ensuring the competition will be fierce and unpredictable.
The sprint programme will consist of Keirin and Sprint competitions, an invitation Keirin and the head to head Britain and France Team Sprint. There will also be plenty of endurance racing with the highlight being the 1km Madison Time Trial.Details
