Top Dutch sprinters Tuen Mulder and Tim Veldt are the latest riders to be confirmed for the next Revolution on January 20th.
The Dutch duo have been in good form this season with Mulder placed fourth and seventh in the Keirin and Sprint World Cup standings and the Dutch team placed second behind the Brits in the Team Sprint standings. The pair will add some serious competition to the line up which also features Sprint number one Craig MacLean and French star Arnaud Tournant.
“We will have the best sprint line up for this season of Revolution” commented organiser James Pope. “Tournant has been eager to come back to the Revolution so we have created an extreme programme to make the most out of these guys. There will be plenty of young British talent in the line up too so the racing will be intense”.
Heading the home talent will be Junior Team Sprint World Champions Dave Daniell and Christian Lyte who are relishing the opportunity to take on legends like Tournant, “It’s amazing to ride against the big names,” commented Stockport based Lyte. “It provides real racing in a top level environment which is a rare opportunity for riders our age.”
“The experience is invaluable” he continued. “It has definitely helped me and the squad progress and is one of the reasons we did so well at the Junior World Championships. This season the racing has been better than ever so we’re all looking forward to the last event.”
Lyte will be joined by Olympic Development riders Steve Hill, Tim Buck, Pete Mitchell and Josh Hargreaves. These riders will race across a series of sprint events with some feature races to be confirmed.
