The second Revolution night of track racing of the current season will welcome another sell-out crowd to the Manchester Velodrome on Saturday, December 6. The main attraction will be the return to racing for Chris Hoy, who will line up against his British team mates as well as international challengers Tuen Mulder, Roberto Chiappa and Itmar Esteban.

Complimenting the sprint racing will be a world class endurance field with CSC-Saxo Bank's Luke Roberts taking on the cream of British talent including Geraint Thomas, Ed Clancy, Steve Cummings, Chris Newton and Rob Hayles.

One of the highlights to the programme will once again be a head to head between Team Sprint and Team Pursuit. This time with Chris Hoy back on the team, the sprinters will be looking for retribution after defeat at the last Revolution. Over a longer course of 1km and without the flying start, they are determined to triumph in this unique competition.

In the other racing Lizzie Armistead, Jo Rowsell, Katie Colclough and Alex Greenfield will be taking on some of the best British women. "I'm really looking forward to racing at Revolution. It is a fantastic opportunity to ride with some strong girls and get even more experience to take into World Cup events," said Armistead, who is currently leading the World Cup Scratch and Team Pursuit events.

Completing the line-up will be Bradley Wiggins. Giving his legs a pre- Christmas rest, the double Gold medallist will be in the Track Centre Expo area from 7-9pm signing copies of his new book, "In Pursuit of Glory".
