Olympic track cycling champion turned Tour de France hero Bradley Wiggins makes a much anticipated return to the track on Saturday (December 5), as he lines up to take part in the second leg of the 2009/10 Revolution track series.
Manchester velodrome again accommodates a host of world-class cycling talent, with British and continental stars out in force.
Wiggins tops the bill in the evening’s endurance events. He will be joined by fellow British riders and Revolution stalwarts Geraint Thomas, Ben Swift, Dean Downing and Russell Downing. Also making their 2009/10 Revolution season debut are Team GB riders Chris Newton, Ed Clancy, Andy Tennant and Steven Burke.
The British contingent will have to contend with seasoned six-day stars Leon Van Bon, Luke Roberts and Leif Lampater.
Saturday’s Revolution also boasts a stunning line-up of sprint superstars, including Sky+HD’s Jason Kenny, Matt Crampton, Jamie Staff, Ross Edgar and Pete Mitchell, plus David Daniell, Craig MacLean and Roberto Chiappa.
Former Olympic skier Alain Baxter will make his much talked-about track racing debut, having switched from piste to velodrome earlier this year.
Some standing space is still available at the event – all seats have now been sold out. For more information and to purchase the remaining tickets, visit www.cyclingrevolution.com.
