I love track cycling. It's one of my favourite sports (plus it doesn't hurt that Team GB is so bloody good at it) and next week the world's leading track cycling series is back in town...
I've always wanted to go to the famous Ghent six day event at Kuipke velodrome to have beers and frites in the track centre surrounded by the action - maybe next year - and whilst the Revolution Series hasn't reached the same iconic status just yet, it's the most exciting opportunity to watch track racing in the UK. I went last year and loved the fast-paced programme and buzzy atmosphere, and this year we've got track centre tickets so it's going to be even more fun. Cycling fans will be heading to Lee Valley VeloPark next weekend to watch the new Champions League competition featuring leading British and international pro teams and Olympic riders including 4-time gold medallist
Trotty Laura Kenny, who has just been confirmed to race for the first time since the Rio Olympics.
Created in collaboration with British Cycling and the National Cycling Centre, The Revolution Series aims to transform track events into an exciting new format to attract spectators and to create a competitive stage to develop British talent. Launched in 2003, the Revolution Series now attracts 35,000 spectators to the Manchester, London, Derby and Glasgow velodromes and is aired live on Eurosport across 54 countries. Sound good? See you there.
The Revolution Series Champions League takes place in London on 2 & 3 December
