Sir Bradley Wiggins hails the continued success of the Revolution Series as he looks ahead to his next target: the World Cup in Cali

Sir Bradley Wiggins says he’s ready for the first round of the UCI Track World Cup in Cali, Colombia, this weekend on the back of a strong showing at the Revolution Series in Manchester.

Wiggins rode alongside teammate Owain Doull in the second round of the series at the National Cycling Centre, with the pair finishing third in the Madison time trial and winning the team elimination race.

The former Team Sky rider also came second to team pursuit teammate Andy Tennant in the scratch race to cap off an impressive individual performance.

And Wiggins says he’s now ‘ticked off’ two stepping stones in his build up to nailing down a permanent spot on Team GB’s team pursuit squad for the Rio 2016 Olympics.

“The European Track Championships was the first phase with me being back in the team pursuit squad, so we ticked that one off,” Wiggins told Telegraph Sport. “Now we’ve done Revolution tonight and next up is the Track World Cup in Cali, then we’ll be building towards the world championships in London in March which will be really big.”
