Owain Doull and Jon Dibben in top form at final round of the 2015/16 Revolution Track Series in Manchester at the weekend
Doull and Dibben proved to be unbeatable during the evening’s racing, with a convincing win the Madison time trial. The duo are currently training hard as part of Great Britain’s team pursuit squad aiming for victory at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.
Doull put their victory down to a long-standing close friendship: “It helps being such good mates, me and Jon [Dibben] live together so we’re always with each other,” said the 22-year-old Welshman.
“There is only one year between us and we’ve been racing together since we were 12 so it makes a big difference.”
Team Wiggin’s bid for glory was almost derailed during the team elimination when a crash saw Dibben’s rear wheel clipped – but he managed to stay upright.
Trott won the points race by a vast margin having lapped the rest of the field three times over. She now heads into the 2016 Track World Championships in London in March as firm favourite to take the omnium title.
Dutchman Theo Bos made a return to Revolution, and won the sprint event. And Sir Chris Hoy was on hand to present Jessica Roberts and Lewis Stewart with their trophies for winning the HOY Future Stars competition.
Full results can be found on the Revolution Cycling website.
According to Revolution organiser FACE Partnership, the series will return in the winter of 2016 will a new format.
