A new season for the Revolution Series brings about a new UK Championships League with the best of the UK Teams vying for a place in the Revolution Championship 2016. Season fourteen here in the UK sees the Revolution Series move to an annual event, 2016, 2017, 2018 and so on.  There are three rounds lined up for 2016, Manchester 17 Sept, Glasgow 08 Oct and Manchester 22 Oct. Ten Teams are challenging here for the UK Championship Title.

The aim is to run rounds in Europe from 2017 and in Asia further in the future, bringing the winning teams into the Championship League to fight for the top prize and overall winner.

This season sees three final rounds in Paris 18-19 November, Manchester 25-26 November and the finals in London on December 02-03.

Alongside the Championships this year are the Elite Women’s Team Championships with eight teams competing against each other. This is a more structured event than of late with domestic teams and mixed international teams competing.

As traditional with the Revolution, the youngsters compete in their own Championships and we continue with the Future Star competition for both boys and girls with HOY Bikes Future Stars through the season.

Dynamic Duo Ed Clancy and Jon Mould for JLT Condor p/b Mavic claim the round one victory in Manchester in the opening round of the Revolution UK Championship 2016.

The pair worked well together winning the Flying Lap, Team Elimination and the Revolution Madison Time Trial. They were the only pair to post a sub 55s TT and lead the Championship by a slender seven point at 122.

Team Wiggins Owain Doull and Sam Harrison took both the Elimination Scratch Race and the Points Race, Doull, Mould and Andrew Tennant gained a lap over field in a tough and exciting race. Tennant ended up on the cote d’azure after a coming together mid race that neutralized the race for a couple of laps.

Bobby Lea won the final Scratch Race for Maloja Pushbikers keeping them in fourth place with 86p behind third placed Team Pedalsure with 108p.
