The British asserted their dominance over the Dutch in impressive form at Revolution 9 but now the Germans are coming setting up another epic sprint clash at Revolution 10 at the Manchester Velodrome on Saturday November 19th.
World Sprint Champion Rene Wolff and Carsten Bergemann will make their first appearance at Revolution and will be joined by Jan Van Eijden who was a massive hit with the crowd at Revolution 7. They will take on Team Sprint World Champions Chris Hoy and Jason Queally and National Sprint Champion Craig MacLean whose recent return to form has made him a serious contender to get back into the Team Sprint starting three.
The history between the British and German sprint squads will make this contest a serious matter of national pride. It was Germany who knocked out the British Team Sprint at the Olympics denying them a medal despite the fact the Brits posted the second fastest time in the heats. However, the British made no mistakes at the World Championships this year taking the title over the Dutch and leaving the Germans trailing in third place.
The action will also be fierce in the Sprint and Keirin competitions. Rene Wolff is the Sprint World Champion but after Craig MacLean’s 10.248 winning lap to take the National Sprint Title he will pose a serious challenge. Up and coming sprinter Matt Crampton will also be a rider to watch after winning the sprint competition at Revolution 9.
With the top three Madison teams in the world fighting it out in the endurance races and an elite women’s endurance omnium Revolution 10 will provide another superb night of track racing.
