The next Revolution (#15) will come to Britain's Manchester velodrome on December 9th. World champions Joan Llaneras and Isaac Galvez (madison) and Peter Schep (points race) will attend along with European derny champion Iijo Keisse, UIV Cup leader Danny Stam, and Italian track racer Marco Villa.

"We wanted to bring in the top six day stars for the next event for some pure track racing," said organiser James Pope. “The road stars from the last event [Revolution 14] were great, but they are certainly not track specialists. The riders on December 9th will be on top form from six day racing, so they will provide a really tough challenge for the Brits.”

"We will make the most of the riders by staging a Madison," said Pope. “With the form and determination already on display from the British Cycling Academy and Olympic Development riders, it will be a fast and very exciting race."

A sell-out crowd witnessed an excellent night of racing at Revolution 14, and whilst the road stars adapted well to the track, it was the junior talent who stole the limelight on the evening. Peter Kennaugh and Adam Blythe showed awesome form and speed to win the points and scratch races highlighting the depth of quality in the field.
