Revolution 35 Line-up

A wealth of Continental Stars proved a popular choice for Revolution 35. 2009 Scratch Champion Morgan Kniesky & Canadian Points Champion Jean-Michel Lachance are joined by seasoned Six Day specialists Christian Grassmam, Alex Aeschbach & Andreas Muller to name but a few.

Returning once more and riding for Endura Racing in 2012, Russell Downing played a key role for howies but failed to stop them sliding down the leader board slightly.

Sky Pro Cycling’s new signing for 2012, Luke Rowe will be riding his maiden race.

On the downside, the field will be reduced by Cunga Bikes Elite riders unable to make this round through various reasons.

The special guest racing for the evening plays tribute to our para-cycling athletes in the form of Tandem Sprint events. It takes form of an Omnium style contest between two teams, one from Great Britain and the other from Netherlands.

Race Analysis & Results

Man of the match in Footballing terms had to be Sky Pro Cycling’s new signing Luke Rowe. At times, it looked like the turbo button of the Hornby Scalextric Velo Set had been pushed (If it has one, that is!) as the blue figure whizzed around the boards. Even the seasoned Continental guests couldn’t contain his enthusiasm to show off his new colours , much to the delights of the crowd.

Reaching new heights in the DHL Future Stars competition, Cunga Bikes Emily, took her ninth consecutive win to dominate the Girls racing. With one round left, it is un-lightly that anyone will deny her a third title.
