World's best Madison teams to Revolution

Revolution 10 at Manchester on November 19 will be the scene for a battle between some of the best endurance riders in the world. World Madison champions Rob Hayles and Mark Cavendish will come face-to-face with World Madison silver medallists Danny Stam and Robert Slippens, and bronze medallists Matt Gilmore and Iijo Keisse at the Manchester Velodrome. With the three best Madison teams in the world confirmed to ride and some of the world's best sprinters to be announced shortly, it looks set to be an amazing night of racing.

The Revolution will focus on sprint and endurance events, and plans are afoot to shake up the event programme to add a bit of extra excitement to the action. There will be 14 teams taking part in the endurance events on the night and a special race has been added to the programme to showcase the two best teams in the world. A revenge pursuit Madison will see Cavendish and Hayles fighting it out against Slippens and Stam in a race never before seen at Revolution. Mark Cavendish, who is heading off to ride in the Grenoble Six, is upbeat about his chances, saying, "It's cool that we're going to be doing a race that hasn't been done at Revolution before; it's wicked, and pretty special to be the top Madison team in the world."
