Treble Olympic gold medallist Chris Hoy will make his 2008/9 track debut at Revolution 22 in Manchester.

After starting off the season with a sprint victory at the Milan 6 at the beginning of November, Chris is on good form. He said: “I'm really looking forward to getting back racing. Revolution is one of the highlights of the season for all the riders so I’m pleased it'll be my first race back.”

The Scot has been a star attraction at the Revolution Series for the past six years. He said: “The racing is really hard and fast, and the event brings some of the best riders in the world to compete. This quality and the entertainment element creates an amazing atmosphere that is unique in track racing."

Chris, who won the sprint, keirin and team sprint in Beijing, is already looking ahead to next year. He said: “[My] focus will be the World Championships and hopefully I’ll be contending all three sprint disciplines.”

Competing alongside Chris and already confirmed are Team GB Olympic medallists Jamie Staff, Jason Kenny and Ross Edgar as well as top European sprinters Tuen Mulder, Itmar Esteban and Roberto Chiappa. The event is sold out. Tickets for the remaining Revolution events on 10 January and 21 February are available at www.cyclingrevolution.com.
