Following a night of intense racing and competition at Revolution 13 the Future Stars Series is delicately balanced in advance of the next round which takes place this Saturday on November 18th. With only three points dividing the girls competition at the moment, round two is set for some pure adrenalin racing with every point crucial as the riders fight to consolidate their position.
The competition kicked off in style at Revolution 13 with the racing often exceeding the elite events in both action and entertainment. The new generation of Future Stars were clearly hungry for victory with exciting displays of strategy and showmanship across the field. At the end of the night Alex Greenfield was left holding a slim three point lead over Helen Clayton in the girls competition.
With the competition this tight all the riders are fully aware that there is no room for error and are prepared for some tough racing ahead. Welsh rider Alex Greenfield won two out of the three races at Revolution 13 but realises that only a clean sweep can guarantee security at the top of the table, “I was very pleased about winning two races out of the three because I made an early impression against my main rivals” said Greenfield. “The competition is very close so I will have to try and get a clean sweep at the next Revolution to keep hold of the lead.”
“Helen Clayton and the other contenders are top class riders” she continued. “They are going to be stiff competition at the next event but I intend beating them, as I am sure they intend beating me. So it will be interesting to see what happens.”
Securing a top position in the Future Stars is now established as an influential factor in helping British junior talent move up through the British Cycling development structure and with everything to race for in both competitions the DHL Exel Supply Chain Future Stars is set for an exhilarating return at Revolution 14.
