The Revolution track series will once again play host to some of the sport’s most talented young riders as its Future Stars championship returns for another year.
48 of the country’s top young cyclists have been selected for the competition and will compete for the Future Stars overall title as well as riding alongside some of the most famous British track stars in their Revolution Championship teams.
Phil West of British Cycling has been involved with the DHL Future Stars for a number of years and thinks there will be a few key riders to look out for this season.
”Once again, we have a really talented bunch of riders taking part in Future Stars, so it’s a tough call to pick a favourite for the title,” West commented.
“However, a few of the riders have been doing great things this season and will definitely be worth keeping an eye on”.
One particular prospect West identifies is Welsh rider Owain Doull, who took gold in the U16 Points Race at this year’s British Junior Track Championships. John Dibben is also expected to shine after bringing home two silver medals from the European Youth Olympics in July.
West points to Hannah Barnes and Lucy Garner as favourites for the women’s title, with both girls holding a host of youth titles each on the road and track. Last season, Hannah and Lucy finished the competition in joint ninth position and each will be hoping to outdo the other this Series.
