Revolution – new series

Press Release from the Revolution…

Science in Sport Team Sprint at Revolution
Shane Sutton, sprint coach for the British track team, has stated his team’s intent to “get one over” the Dutch at the upcoming Revolution on 15th October at Manchester Velodrome. With the late announcement that Jason Queally will be taking to the boards along with the already confirmed Olympic Kilo Champion Chris Hoy and Craig MacLean, who last week became the National Sprint Champion, the biggest battle of the night looks set to be in the Science in Sport Team Sprint wherein the reigning World Champions will be taking on the might of the Dutch threesome Theo Bos, Tuen Mulder and Tim Veldt.

“The calibre of the team we’re fielding shows how seriously we are taking this. The Dutch are one of the biggest threats in team sprinting in the world at the moment and as reigning World Champions we are determined to get one over them in advance of the World Cups”

Science in Sport who has supported the event since its conception has this season become the Official Nutrition Supplier to Revolution. The Science in Sport Team Sprint will be one of the hardest fought events of the night and Pete Slater from SIS is enthusiastic about once again being a part of the event:

“Science in Sport is pleased to continue supporting the Revolution series.  After the huge success of the first two series of events this third Revolution series is set to continue to attract the best cyclists in the world, and provide capacity crowds with some very exciting and entertaining racing.  Nutritional support for the riders at these events is very important and as Science in Sport is the official nutrition partner to the Great Britain cycling team support of the Revolution series further enhances our reputation as leaders in sports nutrition.”

The Cycling Revolution
Revolution was created in 2003 by Face Partnership and the Manchester Velodrome to provide a new style of cycling event in the UK, a style that would focus on action and entertainment to provide a unique night at the races.

Through an action packed alternative race programme over three hours spectators will see Olympic heroes such as Chris Hoy and Bradley Wiggins taking on challenges from some of the best cyclists in the world. The racing is fast and the atmosphere is electrifying with music and lighting effects enhancing the action. With numerous bars, food outlets and attractions around the concourse and in track centre it’s not just about the racing as Revolution provides a superb night of entertainment for all the family.

The Revolution is now getting ready for its third season and with more star riders and a unique theme to each event it continues to attract capacity crowds to the Manchester Velodrome.
