Scratch Race World Champion Alex Rasmussen and team-mate Michael Morkov will join a glittering international line up for the next round of the Revolution Championship, Revolution 30, on November 20.

The Saxo Bank pros will be joined by six day stars Franco Marvulli, Leif Lampater, Christian Grassmann and Sebastian Donadio in one of the strongest endurance line ups in Revolution's history.

"The endurance field at the next Revolution will be one of the strongest we've had at an event," commented event director James Pope.

"Morkov and Rasmussen are a class act so we're expecting them to make an immediate impact on the Championship. With such an exciting and attacking field of international riders, joined with the calibre of British riders, Revolution 30 is set to be a display of endurance brilliance."

Rasmussen's world Scratch title follows double world titles in 2009 in the Madison and Team Pursuit, which he won with Morkov. Revolution will see the pair come face to face with the current Junior Madison Champions Simon Yates and Dan McLay as well as a strong British contingent including Rob Hayles and Alex Dowsett.

The competition will also be boosted by the return of Team Sky's endurance stars and several top British Academy riders.
