Reigning Olympic omnium and team pursuit champion Laura Trott will be looking to add to her unbroken 17-race winning streak at the second round of the 2014/15 Revolution Track Series in Manchester on Saturday.
Trott has so far been a dominant force in the Revolution Series this year, winning every round of the six-event omnium during the opening round in London in October.
The Wiggle-Honda rider is one of a number of track and road stars appearing at the round, including fellow British riders Peter Kennaugh, Luke Rowe, Ed Clancy and Joanna Rowsell. It's likely to be Trott's final appearance racing in Wiggle-Honda colours as she moves to the Matrix Fitness-Vulpine team for next season.
Trott will not have an easy ride in Manchester, as she will face double road race world champion and fellow Wiggle-Honda rider Giorgia Bronzini of Italy. Bronzini is also strong on the track, having won last weekend's Belgium Open International scratch race and been the points race world champion in 2009.
“The big goal will be the Worlds in France, in February, so I will do my big block of training before then,” Bronzini said. “Also, next week at Revolution will be hard, because the level will be high. I will have a lot of team mates there, so it will be good to show something of Wiggle-Honda.”
Also on the bill, French sprinter and triple world champion Francois Pervis will come up against British regular Philip Hindes, fresh from his victory in the team sprint in the opening round of the Track World Cup in Mexico.
Although Saturday evening seating tickets have sold out, there are still some places available in the track centre lounge and for the afternoon session, which includes the unique Longest Lap race.
Television highlights of the event will be shown on Channel 4 at 7am on Saturday, November 29, and available on 4 On Demand shortly after.
