Treble Olympic gold medallist Chris Hoy will make his current Revolution season debut on 6 December, giving British fans the first chance to see the Scottish rider since his success in Beijing.
After starting the season with a sprint victory at the Milan ‘Six’ at the beginning of November, Chris is on good form for the upcoming Revolution. He says: “I’m really looking forward to getting back racing. Revolution is one of the highlights of the season for all the riders so I’m pleased that it will be my first race back.”
Chris has been a star attraction at every Revolution series over the past six years and always enjoys returning to Manchester, saying: “The combination of entertainment with high quality racing is what has made the Revolution so successful. The racing is really hard and fast and the event brings some of the best riders in the world to compete – this quality and the entertainment element creates an amazing atmosphere that is unique in track racing.”
He continued: “The riders all really enjoy racing the event and many riders have used the Revolution as their swansong with Fiedler and now McGee choosing it as their last race. This goes to show the popularity of Revolution with the riders as well as the spectators.” With a busy season planned for this winter and spring, Chris is looking ahead, saying: “[my] focus will be the World Championships and hopefully I’ll be contending all three sprint disciplines.”
Unfortunately such is the demand, Revolution 22 is already sold out. Those who have secured a ticket however will look forward to a top evening of racing and entertainment, with riders including Jamie Staff, Jason Kenny and Ross Edgar and top European sprinters Tuen Mulder, Itmar Esteban and Roberto Chiappa.
Tickets for the remaining Revolution events on 10th January and 21st February are available to purchase on www.cyclingrevolution.com.
