Revolution 14, if you missed it, turned out to be an evening of world class racing, typified by impressive speed and closer-than-close racing. Gracing the Manchester Velodrome was something of a star line-up, with Roger Hammond, Yaroslav Popovych, Gilberto Simoni, Jimmy Casper and Bradley McGee, as well as brits David Millar and Bradley Wiggins. The pros didn’t have it all their way though, as some strong competition from the future stars pushed them hard.
We’ll bring you the full results soon, but for now, enjoy some photos from the evening…

It was about here that Wiggins was worried about the rider behind. And he was right to, as Adam Blythe took the final race win of the evening, the Plowman Craven Elite 15km Scratch Race. (pic: David Arthur)
More photos soon, and we’ve got interviews with all the stars to follow soon.
