Strong Scottish Line Up Named for Revolution Series

12/11/2013
Scottish Cycling has unveiled a strong team of homegrown riders to race Revolution Series Round 2 in Glasgow’s Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome on Saturday 30th November. The man himself will also be in attendance at the venue that bears his name. 

James McCallum, Callum Skinner, Ross Edgar, Evan Oliphant, John Paul, Charline Joiner and Kayleigh Brogan will be among the Scottish riders competing at the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome later this month.

Olympic hero Sir Chris Hoy will be in Glasgow for Revolution Series Round 2 to see the HOY Future Stars in action and launch the first track bike in his HOY range

Hoy wrote on Twitter last week: "Very excited to finally unveil my first @HOYbikes track bike as well as 650c youth track & road models @RevolutionUK round 2 in Glasgow!"

Revolution Series first visited Glasgow in February, when McCallum and Rapha Condor JLT team-mate Ed Clancy sealed Elite Championship victory in the final race of the Series.

McCallum said: "Winning the Revolution Series last season in front of a Scottish crowd was one of the highlights of my career.

"The fans really pushed us on and I'm sure it'll be the same at Round 2. It's a chance for Scottish cycling fans to get behind the team and see some world-class track racing before the Commonwealth Games."

A strong line-up of international riders will also compete while Team Sky, Madison-Genesis, Rudy Project RT and current title holders Rapha Condor JLT will do battle in the Elite Championship.

A blend of endurance and sprint racing will unfold across two sessions (1pm-4pm and 7pm-10pm) with Elite Championship, UCI qualification and HOY Future Stars points on offer. Buy tickets here

Councillor Archie Graham, Chair of Glasgow Life and Executive Committee Member for the Commonwealth Games, said: “The Revolution Series is a fantastic opportunity for the people of Glasgow and Scotland to come along and watch world class cyclists compete in our fantastic £113 million Emirates Arena. I really hope the home crowd comes out in their droves to support the strong Scottish team we have competing.


“We are committed to bringing major sporting events to the city and developing sport at all levels. Getting the chance to see some of their cycling heroes will help to inspire future generations to get involved in the sport.”

Please note: A free shuttle bus service to Glasgow city centre will operate from the Emirates Arena after the evening session.
