Revolution 47 Preview
Returning to the home of Track Cycling, Revolution 47 is already a sell-out (Standard Seating) event for the round two evening session, in Manchester’s National Cycling Centre.
Sky’s Peter Kennaugh returns to the boards after a successful season on the road. Showing his dominance around the boards last season, Will Kennaugh, light-up the afterburners and lap the field over, and over again? Joining him will be Team-Mate Lowe Rowe, and together will hope to edge closer to the top of the Championship Leader Board, where Maloja Pushbikers RT have a fifteen point advantage.
Confirmed for Revolution 47 is crowd favourite Laura Trott. She’s the dominant force in Women’s Track Cycling here in Great Britain. Trott has won all her events in the last three rounds of the Revolution. Can she continue her success back in Manchester?
Pitching her Track Cycling pedigree, Italy’s Giorgia Bronzini will be Trott’s main continental rival. It’s going to be a good indicator for Round Two of the Track World Cup that takes place in London early in December. Bronzini has been riding well in the Belgium Open Saturday recently, winning the Scratch Race.
Joanna Rowsell is back in the mix at Revolution 47. You can see a feature in the Revolution 47 Programme. She commentated at Revolution 44 and 45 (there should be a picture by yours truly) along side regular presenter Sian Welby. Hoping to take the glory from Trott, Rowsell will be joined by Elinor Barker, Amy Roberts and Katie Archibald in the UCI ranked Women’s Endurance events.
Sprinting plays a big part in the Revolution Event Experience. This time it’s the big Frenchman Francois Pervis who dominated at his last visit, back at Revolution 45. Home grown talent, Callum Skinner & Philip Hindes will hope to out-smart Pervis in the Elite Sprint Competition.
