Shane Sutton, sprint coach for the British track team, has stated his team's intent to "get one over" the Dutch at the upcoming Revolution on October 15 at Manchester Velodrome. With the recent announcement that Jason Queally will be taking to the boards along with the already confirmed Olympic kilo champion Chris Hoy and Craig MacLean, who last week became the national sprint champion, the biggest battle of the night looks set to be in the Science in Sport team sprint where the reigning world champions will be taking on the might of the Dutch threesome - Theo Bos, Tuen Mulder and Tim Veldt.
"The calibre of the team we're fielding shows how seriously we are taking this. The Dutch are one of the biggest threats in team sprinting in the world at the moment and as reigning world champions we are determined to get one over them in advance of the World Cups" said Sutton.
This weekend's racing in Manchester is event one of Revolution's third season of competition. Other season dates are: Event 2 - November 19, 2005; Event 3 - January 21, 2006; Event 4 - February 18, 2006.
