Wiggins to kick off track season in Manchester

Olympic Pursuit Champion Bradley Wiggins will make his return to track racing at the Manchester Velodrome on November 17 for the Revolution event. The British track star has always been a firm favourite at the event and is always guaranteed to provide plenty of action.

Revolution 18 will provide plenty of opportunity for Wiggins to test his form with a programme focussed on some serious endurance racing against some of the world top six day specialists. The event also comes a few days before the start of the Ghent Six, which Wiggins will ride with T-Mobile team-mate Mark Cavendish, allowing riders a final chance to hone their track skills and be ready to challenge each other ahead of the action in Belgium.

One of the international riders already lined up to challenge Wiggins is recent Amsterdam six day winner Iljo Keisse. Keisse first made an appearance at Revolution back in 2004 riding with Matt Gilmore. Following his victory in Amsterdam last weekend Keisse is now firmly established as one of the top six day specialists and will be one of the favourites for the racing at Revolution.
