Watch: Bradley Wiggins wins elimination race in exhilarating fashion

Sir Bradley Wiggins and teammate Owain Doull snatched victory at the last moment at the recent Revolution Series in Manchester

Sir Bradley Wiggins showed why he’s still a force in world track cycling with victory in the team elimination race at the second round of the Revolution Series in Manchester over the weekend.

Paired with fellow Team Wiggins rider Owain Doull, Sir Brad saw off eventual second place finisher Iljo Keisse (Etixx – Quick-Step) at the last possible moment.

Staying on or near the front through the earlier rounds the British pair kept out of trouble and never looked like being eliminated as more and more riders fell by the wayside.

Coming into the final race for the line, Doull and Wiggins chose to conduct a late change which put Wiggins head-to-head with Keisse.

As the change took place the Belgian attacked around the outside trying to steal a march, but Wiggins was alive to it and out-sprinted his rival by not much more than a tyre’s width to take the win.

Wiggins is now in Cali, Colombia for the first round of the UCI Track World Cup, an event he says he is well prepared for.

The World Cup runs from Friday October 30 to Sunday November 1, and will be shown on the UCI’s YouTube channel.
