Doull (Team Wiggins) and Clancy (JLT Condor) will ride in round one of the series in Manchester on September 17 against each other. Both riders have been regulars in the event in past seasons.
“It’s just great to be part of something so special, we’re still on cloud nine," said Clancy. "We’re living the dream right now. But people don’t often realise that we can’t take it completely easy, we’ve got races coming up just next month such as the Revolution in Manchester. I’m out training for six hours’ tomorrow, really it starts again here.”
Doull added: “I’ve taken part in the Future Stars at Revolution for three seasons since I was 14. In the last season, I won it, which was nice. I’ve ridden the Revolution a lot; there aren’t many platforms you can race at in front of a packed crowd of 5,000 people and I think, actually, by the time you get to something like the Olympics, it gives you an advantage because it’s a natural environment for you.”
After his appearance in the Olympic Games, Team Sky confirmed that they have signed Doull for the 2017 season as he will embark on a new chapter of his riding career on the road.
In addition to the Revolution Track Series, there is a new series of events for 2016 - the Revolution Champions League. Both Team Wiggins and JLT Condor will both be trying to qualify for the new Champions League, where they will face teams representing seven WorldTour teams including Sky, Orica-BikeExchange and Trek-Segafredo.
