The Revolution returns to Manchester for Round 2 with the ‘traditional’ one day programme – featuring a full sprint programme with match sprinting and keirins as well as the usual mix of elite endurance and Hoy Bikes Future Stars.
The Elite Endurance competition sees Ed Clancy return, joining European champion Andreas Graf, 2013-14 Points race star Peter Kennaugh and his Sky teammate Luke Rowe.
In the Women’s competition, Jo Rowsell abandons her role as a pundit to return to the racing – facing Laura Trott who took a clean sweep in the Women’s Omnium in Round 1 as well as Elinor Barker, Katie Archibald, Ciara Horne and Amy Roberts who took Gold with Trott in last weekend’s World Cup Team Pursuit.
Leading the continental opposition – Laura Berthon of France, who rode the Omnium in Mexico last week and fellow Omnium specialist Giorgia Bronzini of Italy.
The sprint line-up, too, is mouth-watering with triple World Champion Francois Pervis doing battle with recent World Cup Team Sprint winners Callum Skinner and Philip Hindes.
