Six dates for the 2015/16 Revolution Track Series have been announced, taking in Glasgow, Manchester and London

The six-round 2015/16 Revolution Track Series will kick off earlier than previous years, with the first round taking place over August 15-16.

The two-day opening round will feature both a men’s and women’s multi-discipline omnium, and will serve as a stepping stone for riders wishing to accrue UCI points ahead of the following UCI Track World Cup season, with the 2016 Track World Championships taking place in London. A world-class start list is therefore assured.

Although the venue for the opening round has yet to be announced, the following rounds will take place in established Revolution venues: the Sir Chris Hoy velodrome in Glasgow, Lee Valley Velo Park in London and the National Cycling Centre in Manchester.

Revolution Series promoter James Pope said: “We’ve planned to start the season earlier than usual this year as momentum builds towards the Worlds in London and then onto Rio 2016. The calendar of events has been planned with this in mind with the first round in August providing a good opportunity for riders to get important UCI qualification points ahead of the World Cup season.”

Since its inception in 2003, the Revolution Series has quickly established itself as highly popular, with the fast-paced schedule of events and star names often leading to tickets selling out well in advance.

Tickets for the series have gone on sale from Monday, April 13. For more details and ticket booking, visit the Revolution Series website.
