Wiggins to ride Revolution

Bradley Wiggins will be making a return to the boards in the Revolution event on December 5th at the Manchester Velodrome. The organizers are expecting capacity crowds as Britain’s best endurance rider revisits his track roots after his revelation to finish fourth in the Tour de France this year.

A regular feature at previous Revolution Series, Wiggins will be making a star appearance for Craig MacLean’s team the Slicks and will be the favourite to pull in the points over the longer distances.

Joining Wiggins on the Slicks team will be German six-day star Leif Lampater, who recently finished third in the Munich 6. This intimidating pairing will make the Slicks the team to beat on the night, and will enhance an already strong endurance line-up at the December meeting.

“This will be my first Revolution so I’m pretty excited and want to do well for the team,” Lampeter told us. “It’s going to be great riding on the same team as Bradley Wiggins, as I’m sure the British crowd will all be cheering for the Slicks!”

Two other Revolution teams, the Rollers and Tempo, will also be boosted by the return of their respective captains Chris Newton and Ed Clancy, back from Team GB duty in Melbourne. Their World Cup commitments ruled Clancy and Newton out of the opening Revolution event, and so both riders will be eager to lead their teams by example on their return. The crowd can expect some fierce competition between these popular captains.
