After a strong performance by the British squad against the Dutch at Revolution 9 it's now time for the German team to sprint it out at Revolution 10 at the Manchester Velodrome on November 19.

World sprint champion Rene Wolff and Carsten Bergemann will make their first appearance at Revolution and will be joined by Jan Van Eijden who was a massive hit with the crowd at Revolution 7. They take on team sprint world champions Chris Hoy and Jason Queally, and national sprint champion Craig MacLean whose recent return to form has made him a serious contender to get back into the team sprint starting three.

The history between the British and German sprint squads will make the contest a serious matter of national pride, as it was Germany who knocked out the British team sprint at the Athens Olympics, denying them a medal. However, the British were successful at the world championships this year, taking the title over the Dutch team and leaving the Germans trailing in third place.

The action will also be fierce in the sprint and keirin competitions, with Rene Wolff taking on Craig MacLean, who is in good form after recently taking the national sprint title. Up and coming sprinter Matt Crampton will also be a rider to watch after winning the sprint competition at Revolution 9. With the top three Madison teams in the world fighting it out in the endurance races and an elite women's endurance omnium Revolution 10 will provide another big night of track racing.

Tickets are available online at www.cyclingrevolution.com or by calling 07005 942 579 or the Manchester Velodrome on 0161 223 2244 and selecting option 3.
