Final Revolution as World’s warmup

International teams for Isaac Gálvez Memorial Madison

Belgians Kenny de Ketele and Iljo Keisse will be at the Revolution finale on Feb. 23rd

The last Revolution track meet of the season will take place on February 23rd at Manchester velodrome. The British event will be used by international riders as a warmup for the track world championships in March, which will also take place in Manchester.


The Madison, which will be named after Isaac Gálvez who died at the Ghent Six in 2006, is attracting some strong teams. Belgium will be sending their in-form pairing of Iljo Keisse and Kenny De Ketele with Holland sending European champions Peter Schep and Jens Mouris. They will be challenged by British pairs Geraint Thomas/Rob Hayles and Peter Kennaugh/Jonny Bellis, both of which will have raced at the Copenhagen World Cup.

“The British team are using Revolution as a crucial test event ahead of the world’s,” said Gordon Harling, the team’s technical director. “But it is not just the Brits as the French are sending a strong sprint squad and we will have the strongest pairings from Belgium and Holland in the Madison.”
