Rapha Condor Sharp’s dynamic duo of Clancy & Tennant win four of the five rounds in this first event, given then nine points lead in the Championship.

It is rumoured the Ed Clancy with switch to the Sprint Programme in the near future, Clancy is a multi Olympic & World Champion at endurance events. Maybe he is bolstering his Sprint technique for future events or he is seriously thinking about Team Sprint.

It’s probably Alex Dowsett’s last ride in the Sky Pro Cycling’s colours as he departs to Movistar for 2013.

ITV4’s Revolution 37 highlight’s co-presenter Lizzie Armitstead announces that she will be riding Revolution 38, against this Summers arch rival Marianne Vos. Vos who outsprinted Armitstead to the Olympic Gold in London 2012 will come head to head for this sell-out round on December 1st. Don’t forget to tune in if you missed out on tickets 05th December.
