Armitstead and Vos renew Olympic rivalry at Revolution

Lizzie Armitstead and Marianne Vos, London 2012

Olympic road race rivals Lizzie Armitstead and Marianne Vos will clash at the next round of the Revolution track series in Manchester, on Saturday December 1.

Dutchwoman Vos narrowly beat Brit Armitstead to gold in the Olympic road race in London at the end of July, and now the pair will renew their rivalry on the boards at the National Cycling Centre in front of a sell-out crowd.

Nigel Wynn
Former Associate Editor

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on, he worked almost single-handedly on the Cycling Weekly website in its early days. His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success. Without him, would certainly not exist on the size and scale that it enjoys today. Nigel sadly passed away, following a brave battle with a cancer-related illness, in 2018. He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, an exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
