Rio Olympic gold medallists Laura Kenny and Ed Clancy are two of a number of major riders on the start list for the second round of the Revolution Champions League in London this Friday and Saturday (2-3 December).

The event will be Kenny's first race since winning two Olympic gold medals in Rio, and the 24-year-old says that she is looking forward to getting back on the boards.

"I’m really excited to be back racing again. I’d taken some time off after Rio as the year leading up to the Olympics was very full on with training and I needed a break after it but I’m looking forward to getting back on my bike and enjoying racing after the pressure of Rio.

"I know the others won’t make it an easy race back for me, but it’ll be great fun and even better it will be in front of a home crowd."

Ed Clancy will be joined by JLT-Condor teammate Jon Mould, with the pairing hoping to defend their lead from the opening round in Manchester, where they opened a 27 point gap over Team Pedalsure, which will be represented in London by Andy Tennant and Iljo Keisse.
