Sir Bradley Wiggins will take to the boards at the Manchester Velodrome for round two of the Revolution Series on October 24.
Wiggins will be riding for his eponymous trade team alongside Tour of Britian stand-out Owain Doull, having ridden the Madison with Mark Cavendish at the opening round in Derby.
The former Team Sky man’s schedule is quickly filling up, with the European Track Championships and the first round of the World Cup in Cali, Colombia, falling either side of the Revolution.
“I’m looking forward to representing Team Wiggins in the Revolution Championship” he said. “The next event comes in the middle of a busy period between the Euro Track Championships and Cali World Cup so hopefully I’ll have some good form going into the Revolution event and we can get some points on the board.”
JLT Condor’s Ed Clancy was named by organisers as participating in Manchester, although the Olympian is currently sidelined with a slipped disc. Other names competing are Iljo Keisse (Etixx-Quick Step), Adam Blythe (Orica-GreenEdge), Glenn O’Shea (Orica-GreenEdge), Christian Grasmann and Marcel Kalz (Maloja Pushbikers).
