Revolution – more news

The hero of British track racing, Chris Hoy will compete in a special 500m head to head race at Manchester Velodrome on October 15th. His rival will be the reigning Kilo World Champion, Theo Bos. It should be an exciting race as Hoy will be keen to show the World Champion who is the faster rider. Hoy says:

“Obviously I never like to lose so I was pretty annoyed at the World Championships. Bos is a talented rider so the better man won on the day.

Olympic Champion verses the World Champion is obviously going to be a big one and a head to head over 500m will be really spectacular as it will always be really tight, only a hundredth of a second in it. It will be an opportunity to get one back.

I always look forward to Revolution as the racing and atmosphere with the crowds is unique. The 500m TT in front of the home crowd always gets that bit more out of you so it will be very special”.

Theo and Chris will undoubtedly be the stars of the night but they will be joined by their team mates for what promises to be a fantastic team sprint show down. Bos will be teaming up with Tim Veldt and Tuen Mulder, with whom he came second to Britain at the World Championships, to take on Chris who will be riding with the hugely experienced Craig MacLean and our very own young up-start Ross Edgar.

Tuen Mulder will also be showing what he’s made of in the Keirin – as the reigning Keirin World Champion we are expecting fierce competition from the hard men of sprinting in this the most aggressive event in track racing.

Chris, Theo and Tuen will not be the only world champions gracing the boards, a further six rainbow jersey will be in attendance five of whom are Rob Hayles, Mark Cavendish, Chris Newton, Paul Manning and Andy Tennant. The final rainbow jersey will be released next week so make sure you check out for latest news.

Don’t miss out on this amazing night of grudge matches and revenge battles.
