After the resounding success of the women's sprint omnium at Revolution 9, the organisers of the event have confirmed that for the first time at a Revolution event there will be women's endurance omnium at Revolution 10, with British stars Nicole Cooke and Victoria Pendleton scheduled to ride in Manchester on November 19.

Pendleton fought hard for her victory over Anna Blyth, Willy Kanis and Yvonne Hijgenaar at Revolution 9, and will be testing her endurance skills at this event by joining a field of 20 riders, including powerhouse rider Cooke and young international hopefuls from the UCI school in Switzerland. With a strong field the racing will be intense, and British endurance star Rachel Heal is already looking forward to the challenge.

"We get so few opportunities to ride in front of big crowds, or indeed to compete, that we are all going to be full gas from the outset," said Heal. "We have three weeks to get ready for the World Cup where we will be taking on some of the world's best riders and Revolution is the perfect opportunity to really get our competition head on. I am out to win I can tell you that much."

Tickets and additional information are available from www.cyclingrevolution.com. Tickets will also be available on the door on the night.
