CHAMPIONSHIP SET TO GO TO THE WIRE WITH SEASON FINALE IN GLASGOW
The battle for the Revolution Series Elite Championship is poised to go down to the wire in Glasgow on Saturday 2nd February.
The Revolution will debut at the brand-new Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome and the Scottish fans should be treated to a dramatic evening of racing - several teams are in with a chance of winning the Elite Championship.
Team Rouleur have been boosted ahead of the sold-out event by news that world champion Andy Tennant and Olympic gold medalist Steven Burke will team up for them across the five Elite Championship events on the night.
Tennant recently signed for newly-formed British outfit Madison Genesis, having competed for Rapha Condor JLT earlier in the season. Olympic team pursuit gold medalist Steven Burke has grown stronger throughout the Revolution season and will form a strong partnership with Tennant.
James McCallum will ride for Rapha as they aim to seal overall victory. Christian Grasmann and Nico Hesslich will compete for Rudy Project RT.
Rouleur sit third in the overall standings on 125 points, 35 points behind leaders Rapha Condor JLT. German outfit Rudy Project RT are second on 135 points.
FACE Partnership MD James Pope said: "It's looking set to be an exciting finale to the Elite Championship and the rider transfers at the start of 2013 has created an interesting twist in the competition. Runaway leaders Rapha Condor JLT were dominant with the pairing of Ed Clancy and Tennant but with Tennant leaving the team at the end of 2012 and Clancy potentially unavailable there is a tantalising opportunity for the title other contenders to catch up in the final round.
"Third-placed Rouleur will be boosted by the arrival of Tennant and Burke [who left IG-Sigma Sport at the end of 2012]. It would certainly be a cruel blow to Rapha if Tennant was responsible for snatching away the Elite Championship victory.
"Rudy Project RT are also a threat and have been consistent all series. Rapha Condor's lead is only 25 points so it's all to race for and it should go down to the wire."
Meanwhile an All-Star Scottish team of sprinters will be riding: Craig MacLean, Callum Skinner and John Paul with go head-to-head with a Rest of the World All-Star team.
Other notable names in the rider line-up include Raymond and Michel Kreder, Dutch Madison champions, and Ross Edgar, continuing his transition to endurance for IG-Sigma Sport - go to the full round 4 preview page.
