Alex Dowsett (Movistar) will join a host of international track stars at the opening round of the 2014-15 Revolution Series at the Lee Valley VeloPark in London later this month.

British time trial champion Dowsett will come up against the likes of Team Sky's Ben Swift and Ian Stannard, and NFTO's Adam Blythe on the boards of the London 2012 velodrome over October 24-25.

Dowsett will join forces with Dutchman Wim Stroetinga in the Telegraph All Stars team and will take part in the National Madison Championships on Friday evening.

Dowsett's appearance in the London velodrome comes on the back of his expression of interest in taking on the iconic Hour Record, with a new marker recently set by German Jens Voigt.
