DATES & VENUES
The forthcoming Revolution Series begins on 24/25 October at the Lee Valley VeloPark in London and ends at the National Cycling Centre in Manchester. This season the Revolution Series increases to six rounds including Manchester, London and Glasgow.
Round 1: 24/25 October - London
Round 2: 22 November - Manchester
Round 3: 03 January - Manchester
Round 4: 31 January - Glasgow
Round 5: 27/28 February - London
Round 6: 14 March - Manchester
Each round will feature an afternoon and evening session packed with action from leading male and female British and international cycling stars. There are three elements to each event throughout the season: Elite Championship, UCI-sanctioned competition, and Future Stars (Under-16s).
The Elite Championship is the centrepiece of the Revolution Series race programme, running throughout the five-round season. Six Elite Championship events are spread across each evening session at all venues. Last season, a thrilling contest saw Maloja Pushbikers take victory ahead of Rapha Condor JLT.
In a significant step forward for the Revolution Series, each round will be a UCI Class 1 event, with UCI points available for selected races including the sprint races and elite women's endurance events. These points will go towards rider and team qualification for the World Championship as well as providing an important test between the World Cup rounds.
Designed to develop the UK's brightest young cycling talent, the Future Stars competition sees leading junior riders compete in a league across the season for boy's and girl's titles. Young riders hope to follow in the tracks of Steven Burke and Pete Kennaugh, previous Future Stars winners who have gone on to become Olympic champions.
Future Stars and UCI races will be split across the afternoon and evening session with the emphasis of the evening session on the Revolution Championship and sprint finals.
In the afternoon session, riders will battle for World Cup qualification points in UCI-classified endurance races, combined with Future Stars action and sprint qualification for the evening events.
Each session includes around three hours of racing – see a sample race programme here.
Tickets will be available to buy for all sessions – see more details here.
