Revolution 9 will kick off Series 3 of the UK’s premier track cycling series on Saturday, October 15 at the Manchester Velodrome. With eleven World Champions on the line-up, the event includes a Great Britain verses Holland sprint clash, the women's sprint omnium, world class endurance racing and the new generation of Future Stars.

In the sprint racing, Chris Hoy, Jason Queally and Craig MacLean will come head to head with Theo Bos, Tuen Mulder and Tim Veldt to settle scores from the World Championship earlier this year. The sprint rivalry will continue in the women’s elite racing as Victoria Pendleton and Anna Blyth battle for national pride against Willy Kanis and Yvonne Hijgenaar in the women’s sprint omnium.

Youth will take on experience in the endurance events as up and coming British stars Mark Cavendish, Geraint Thomas and Ed Clancy will challenge the likes of Rob Hayles, Chris Newton and Magnus Bäckstedt, with graduates from the Future Stars competition Steven Burke and Junior World Champion Andy Tennant bolstering the competition.

A full rider list and race programme is available online at www.cyclingrevolution.com . Tickets are available on the door or by calling 07005 942 579.
