The final Revolution of season 3 will be held on Saturday, February 18 at the Manchester Velodrome in Britain, with a number of the stars of the Six Day circuit present. The six day season will finish in Copenhagen next week, allowing many of the riders to make the trip across the Channel to compete in Revolution 12.
Already confirmed are Belgians Matthew Gilmore and Iljo Keisse. The pair have scored two wins and two second places in the Sixes this season, and are in good form. Joining them will be Franco Marvulli and Peter Schep, with the Swiss/Dutch combo keen to race. "I've heard a lot about Revolution from the other riders and it sounds like a great event," said Marvulli. "I really wanted to come and race so I'm ready for it and really looking forward to the experience."
With many of the elite British riders already in Australia for the Commonwealth Games, it will be down to British stars Rob Hayles and Chris Newton to fly the flag for the home nation. "Everything is going really well at the moment and the form is good so I'll be well prepared for the racing at Revolution 12", commented Hayles. "It will be good to get the opportunity to see how well I'm going in the races especially against some of the top six day guys so I'm well up for it."
Hayles and Newton will be joined by Russell and Dean Downing as well as the up and coming British riders who have performed well this season.
