Saturday Evening Session


The final session in the 2013/14 Revolution Series at the Lee Valley VeloPark drew the biggest crowd, although to be fair, all three session were very well attended for this first visit to London for the Revolution.


The Velodrome itself was well lit, and the seating went from the top of the track all the way up to the rafters. With seating all the way round, the sound of the audience as they cheered their favourite rider was phenomenal. And Francois Pervis tweeted his appreciation of the Revolution crowd soon after the competition.


Sir Chris Hoy was in the Velodrome, firstly commenting with Hugh Porter on the Sprint Competition and his time since retiring, and to present the HOY Future Star winners their prizes & jerseys.


In a first for the Revolution, a live feed was streamed to YouTube through the FACE Partnership website, allowing those at the other end of the country a chance to feel part of the whole event, or watch the progress of their favourite rider.


The HOY Future Star Boys Championship was as good as sown up, with Joe Holt (Team USN) retaining the top slot and the first place prize of a HOY bike. But the Girls Championship was still undecided. In the first two races, both Sophie Capewell & Grace Garner each won a race with the other coming in second, but the decider came in race three when Megan Barker (Team USN) went for a long one, with Grace Garner chasing & Megan’s team-mate Jessica Roberts hot on her heels. This gave Grace Garner (Team Sky) the cushion to win the Championship and the first place prize of a HOY bike.


Laura Trott stomped her authority for this fifth time in the Omnium Event.

Spain’s Albert Torres (Madison World Champion) showed off in style, in front of the Lee Valley VeloPark audience. Lapping the field in the earlier stages of the race, Torres had been caught in nowhere land, until the peleton eased up, much to the delight of the crowd.

Clancy set about taking a lap for himself, but required the efforts of additional riders to break free. Keeping his eye on the prize, Torres reacted soon after and caught the escapees to take another lap and stay in the lead.

Not having to contest the sprint for the line, Torres won the final men’s event of the series.

The final race in the Omnium event saw Laura Trott win a sixth race, the first time she has won all races in one meeting. A strong performance from Spain’s Leire Olaberria throughout the three session event added to a great atmosphere, and a well entertained audience applauded this monumental win. Scotland’s Jenny Davis lead the final race up until the final two riders on the track, who rode neck and neck right up to the line. A clean sweep for Trott in her return visit to LeeValley.
