British track star Bradley Wiggins is set to return to the boards on November 19 in Manchester for the 10th Revolution meeting. "After a solid year on the road I'm glad to be able to get back on the track," said Wiggins. "It's always a great night at Revolution, the crowds really support the home riders. I'm looking forward to it."
Wiggins will join forces with team pursuit world champion Chris Newton for the Madison event. With their combined power and aggressive style, Newton and Wiggins could be the riders to cause an upset and take the victory ahead of the other Madison specialists, such as Rob Hayles/Mark Cavendish (subject to injury status), Danny Stam/Robert Slippens, and Matt Gilmore/Iljo Keisse.
"Chris is an aggressive rider so we'll be looking to mix it up in the Madison and give the crowd something to cheer about. It will be a great race to watch," added Wiggins.
The endurance programme will also include a Team Elimination Race, 10km Points Race and the 1km Madison Time Trial.
