Daily Trust - - SPORT -

Sir Bradley Wiggins has been con­firmed to take part in the Revo­lu­tion Se­ries event in Manch­ester on Oc­to­ber 24.

The Olympic Cham­pion will lead Team Wiggins in the Revo­lu­tion Elite Cham­pi­onship and will be look­ing to start the com­pe­ti­tion strongly against cham­pi­onship ri­vals in­clud­ing Team Sky, JLT Con­dor, One Pro Cy­cling, Orica GreenEDGE and de­fend­ing cham­pi­ons Maloja Push­bik­ers.

“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.

Wiggins fea­tured at the open­ing round of the se­ries in Derby where he part­nered with Mark Cavendish in the Madi­son. For the start of the Elite Cham­pi­onship at round 2 he will be joined by team mate Owain Doull cre­at­ing a strong part­ner­ship to kick off the com­pe­ti­tion.

They will face tough op­po­si­tion in­clud­ing Ed Clancy (JLT Con­dor), Adam Blythe, Glenn O’Shea (Orica GreenEDGE), Chris­tian Gras­mann, Mar­cel Kalz (Maloja Push­bik­ers) with more riders to be con­firmed.
