Revolution Champions League 2017-18 – Round 2 Glasgow – Report


The focus shifted north of the border to the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome in Glasgow for Round 2 of the Revolution Series Championship 2017-18

Elite Men

Revolution 64 Glasgow

Matt Gibson opened up the Elite Points Race account for Team HMT, gaining 2 laps on the field and finishing third over the line behind a final sprint win for Team Pedalsure’s Wim Stroetinga. Only Ben Swift of the World All Stars had the pace to close the gap, but at a lap down was a big ask for the UAE rider.

Ed Clancy was back to old Omnium shenanigans taking the second of the Elite events, the Elimination/Scratch race – this time getting the better of Gibson as the bunch charged to the line.

JTL Condor failed to dominate their signature race the Revolution Madison Time Trial, finishing fifth overall to a respectable 55.775 set by Team Pedalsure’s Stroetinga and Yeori Havik.

Inspired battled all the way to the bitter end of the Elite Team Elimination race – fending off World All Stars and Team Pedalsure as Jake Stewart and Fred Wright maintained their Championship lead going into the final round in Manchester early in the New Year.

The final event of the evening session in the Elite championship was the scratch race which saw Team HMT’s Germaine Burton out front with four laps remaining. It looked at one point as though he would take it all the way to the line with no reaction from the peloton but suddenly the group burst into life with the utmost urgency and a marauding peloton went on the hunt as it swallowed the HMT rider up. Stroetinga edged out Clancy by the narrowest of margins over the line putting Team Pedalsure ahead of JLT Condor in what will be a thrilling final event on January 6th.

Elite Women

Revolution 64 Glasgow

Neah Evans was on a mission in-front of her home crowd, winning the first of the Women’s events – the Points Race – lapping the field twice as a fast race unfolded in the afternoon session, to the delight of the audience. Taking the first sprint ahead of Emily Kay of Team WNT, Jess Roberts of Inspired and Dani Rowe of Rowe and King, Evans went on for the second sprint with Kirsten Wild, Rowe and King and Elli Russell of NCC Group-Kuota Torelli who had all pulled free of the peloton to take their first lap.

It wasn’t long before Evans and Wild were at it again and another lap gained soon followed.

Amalie Dideriksen tried a spell off the front, but, with no team-mate for support due to illness, found the going tough and was forced to return back into the fold. Determined to feature in the race, Dideriksen took the third last sprint with Russell, Rowe and Wild.

Rowe and Nelson featured with ten laps remaining – and also gained a lap – and as the final few laps approached it was Storey Racing versus Rowe and King for the final sprint. Evans had already secured her first victory, but Wild took the honours in the last sprint ahead of Nelson with Rowe finishing third. Evans took the win from Wild, Nelson, Rowe then Russell.

A bad fall for Nelson – who later retired – in the Revolution Madison Time Trial didn’t deter Evans from the Elimination/Scratch race win, after a brave solo attack with six laps remaining from Team Jadan-Weldtite p/b Vive le Velo’s Anna Docherty. Wild finished second with Dideriksen third. Rowe and King won the Madison Time Trial with a 1.01.601

Earlier in the evening Inspired’s Jess Roberts took her first win at the Revolution edging out Team Breeze and local girl Jenny Holl in a track lunge for the line ahead of Rebecca Raybould Team WNT and Amber Joseph, Team Pedalsure.

The final event the Team Elimination saw Rowe and Kings Kirsten Wild and Dani Rowe take victory and a strong performance from NCC Group-Kuota-Torelli’s Ellie Russell and Amy Hill. Matrix Fitness put up a fight for third with Corrine Hall and Amalie Dideriksen joining forces.

Future Stars Boys

Revolution 64 Glasgow

JTL Condor’s James Codd leads the Future Star Boys standing following victories in the both the Points Race and the 6 Lap Dash. World All Stars’ Alex Haines and Lewis Askey took the first win of the day in the Boys’ Madison, just ahead of Team Pedalsure’s Oliver Reed and Sam Watson. Watson finished off the event winning the scratch race for Pedalsure, whilst JLT Condors Owain Roberts made it three for the team in the Elimination Race.

Future Stars Girls

Revolution 64 Glasgow

Inspired’s Ella Barnwell stays at the top in the Future Star Girls standings winning both the Scratch Race and the 6 Lap Dash. Finishing second behind Zoe Backstedt of Boels-Dolmans in the Elimination/Scratch race and Amy Monkhouse of Team Jadan-Weldtite p/b Vive le Velo in the final points race of the evening Barnwell is well on the way to becoming this seasons champion.

The Backstedt sisters Zoe and Elynor finished the first event of the day in style taking the final sprint over the line in the girls Madison having gained a lap earlier on during the race.
