Team Great Britain Olympic stars Laura Trott, Ed Clancy, Owain Doull and Katie Archibald will take part in the opening round of the 2016 Revolution Track Series in Manchester on September 17.

The four riders will go into the event having donned GB colours at the 2016 Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, just a few weeks previously.

Trott will attempt to defend her omnium title in Rio, and join Archibald in the women's team pursuit line-up. Clancy and Doull are both part of the men's team pursuit line-up. All are leading contenders to scoop up a medal in the Games.

Should the men's team pursuit squad win gold in Rio, it will add to the Olympic titles from Beijing in 2008 and London in 2012 – and Clancy would have been part of all three, making him the most successful GB team pursuiter in history.

"After missing the whole season last year with a back injury I’m really looking forward to getting back to racing at Revolution," said Clancy. "It will be good to race in front of the home crowds for the JLT Condor team, as I’m sure the atmosphere will be incredible after the Olympics."

This year, the Revolution Series has two separate sets of event: the UK Championships over three rounds, and the newly-introduced Revolution Champions League. The latter features seven WorldTour road teams pitting their riders against the stars of the track world and kicks off in Paris on November 18.
