The 2011/12 Revolution track series kicks off at Manchester velodrome on Saturday evening, October 29.
The ever-popular track series features a fast and furious mix of endurance and sprint disciplines including some of the biggest names in track racing.
Saturday's event sees Brits Alex Dowsett and Steven Burke mixing it up with Dutchman Jens Mouris and German Leif Lampater in the Australian pursuit.
British sprint star David Daniell will be taking on French world champion Michael d'Almeida in the keirin and sprint races.
Plus there's a unique 'cycling the earth' pursuit race between long-distance cyclists Sean Conway and Vin Cox on fully laden touring bikes.
Eight teams are taking part in this season's Revolution Championship, which was won last year by the Maxgear squad.
Highlights of the evening's action will be broadcast by British digital TV channel ITV4 on Monday, October 31, at 7pm.
Further Revolution rounds take place at Manchester velodrome on November 19, January 7 and January 28.
Many of Great Britain's Olympic Games track cycling medal prospects will use later rounds of the series to hone their form ahead of London 2012, including Victoria Pendleton, Sir Chris Hoy and Geraint Thomas.

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on CyclingWeekly.com, he worked almost single-handedly on the Cycling Weekly website in its early days. His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success. Without him, CyclingWeekly.com would certainly not exist on the size and scale that it enjoys today. Nigel sadly passed away, following a brave battle with a cancer-related illness, in 2018. He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, n exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
