Laura Trott and Australian Jack Bobridge returned to the boards of Lee Valley Velopark in London over the weekend for a round of the Revolution Track Series hosted by the capital’s velodrome.

Bobridge joined an all-star cast in London that included some of Britain’s top track talent: Laura Trott, Peter Kennaugh, Ed Clancy, Katie Archibald and Matt Crampton among them. International riders included Glenn O’Shea, Eddie Dawkins, Max Levy, Jasper De Buyst and Marc Hester.

Although Bobridge recently missed out on setting a new world Hour Record, he is obviously in fine shape – setting a blistering pace in Friday’s derny race to take the honours.

“Revolution has been really fun, with a great quality field and a lot of fantastic racing,” said Bobridge. “You can see by the average times and speeds that the racing is world class. Glenn and I would like to return for sure, and come back for another event.”

Trott continued to dominate the women’s events, taking a series of wins on both Friday and Saturday nights despite a concerted effort from Archibald and Spanish rider Leire Olebeirra. Trott’s form was most convincing in the women’s derny race, where she lapped the field three times over.

Maloja Pushbikers top the team championship table after the round, with Orica-GreenEdge in second and Telegraph All-Stars in third.



On Saturday afternoon, Sarah Storey set a new British record, along with Paralympic and master’s record, for the women’s Hour. She fell short of beating the outright women’s Hour Record, but her spirited performance was a huge crowd-pleaser.

The final round of the 2014/15 Revolution Series takes place in Manchester on March 14.

Full results for the weekend can be found on the Revolution Series website.
