WorldTour team Orica-GreenEdge has signed up for the 2014-15 Revolution Series, and will field top Australian and international track riders throughout the popular events.
Aussie track regulars Jack Bobridge, Glen O’Shea, Scott Law, Scott Sunderland and Alex Edmondson will be joined by Orica-GreenEdge team-mates including the newly signed-up British rider Adam Blythe and Dutchman Jens Mouris.
Mouris and Sunderland will be present at the opening round of this autumn/winter’s Revolution series at the Lee Valley VeloPark, London, over October 24-25.
“We are really excited to be taking part in the Revolution Series this year,” said Matt White, Orica-GreenEdge sports director. “The format looks really exciting and provides an opportunity for us to link up with the Australian national squad on the track. We have a solid team but we are up against the best British riders so will expect to see plenty of exciting racing.”
Orica-GreenEdge’s riders will come up against Revolution regulars Team Sky, Rapha Condor, NFTO and Madison-Genesis.
James Pope of Revolution organiser FACE Partnership added: “It’s great to be able to bring the leading Australian track riders together with Orica-GreenEdge, it will add an exciting new dimension to Revolution as they challenge their rivals on the road; Team Sky. It is going to be an action packed Series and we can’t wait to get started.”
In August, FACE confirmed that Marianne Vos and Laura Trott would also be riding in the opening round in London.
