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
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
“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.”

after Round 1. Read the Round 1 race report and watch highlights of the UCI Scratch Race on YouTube.
Please note: A free shuttle bus service to Glasgow city centre will operate from the
