Trott won all six of the Ominium events, despite facing stiff opposition, not least from multi-world champion Marianne Vos.
In the Elite Championship, the German Maloja Pushbikers team topped the table at the end of the event despite strong riding from British stars Ben Swift (Sky) and Alex Dowsett (Movistar, but racing for the Telegraph All-Stars team).
Maloja Pushbikers’ Christian Grasmann and Marcel Kalz won the Madison time trial event and placed highly in other disciplines. Swift won the scratch race and was runner-up behind Wim Stroetinga in the points race.
Swift was also in action in the Revolution Longest Lap event, also known as the Marymoor Crawl. However, it was Adam Blythe who track-standed and then sprinted to victory in the unique event.
Highlights of the round will be shown on Channel 4 on Saturday. November 1, at 7am. The next round will take place on November 22 in Manchester. For more information and tickets, visit the Revolution Series website.
