Competitive cycling returns to London's Lee Valley VeloPark

Three-time Olympic champion Jason Kenny faces a rematch with Frenchman Francois Pervis at the final round of the Revolution Series, after another stellar cast was unveiled for the event on Friday March 14 and Saturday March 15.

Held at London’s Lee Valley VeloPark, Kenny, Pervis and a host of other track stars including Ed Clancy, Laura Trott, Elinor Barker and Katie Archibald will be in action as competitive cycling returns to the Olympic venue.

And the match-up with Pervis, after Kenny lost to the Frenchman in the world championship quarter-finals last week, is just one of a number of big races between Brits and their overseas rivals.

Indeed, a stellar line-up of Six Day talent will be on hand to battle the home riders in a GB vs Rest of the World contest on the Friday night.

World madison one-kilometre TT record holders Ed Clancy and Ollie Wood (Rapha Condor-JLT) will be among the British riders on show, while Spanish world champions Albert Torres and David Muntaner lead the rest of the world squad.

Steven Burke and Andy Tennant will also be in the competition, which will feature a 200-lap Madison race and a team elimination race with the points from each added together. You can read our interview with Burke here.

The Elite Championship also draws to a close at the weekend, with the Rapha Condor-JLT duo bidding to make up a 35-point deficit to leaders Rudy Project RT – set to be represented by in-form Leif Lampater and Christian Grasmann.

Clancy, who helped the team to overall victory last season, said: “It’s still close, there’s one more round to go so it’s not over yet.

“We’ll just try and race smart and pick up points where we can. We’ll open up the taps in London and see what we’ve really got.”

Also on show over the weekend, for which there are very limited tickets still available here and hospitality tickets on offer here until Wednesday March 12, will be sprint stars Matt Crampton and Philip Hindes as they bid to bounce back from a disappointing world championships.

For those unable to watch the event in London, there will be live streaming available on the Saturday on FACE Partnership’s YouTube channel, while BT Sport 2 will show round five highlights on Tuesday March 18.
