“It’s great to be back in the velodrome” – Sir Bradley Wiggins
Gosh that came around quicker than Laura Trott on the back of a derny! The 2015/16 Revolution Series is about to kick off tonight in Derby for a special round presented by Sir Dave Brailsford, boasting an all-star line up with the likes of Mark Cavendish, Laura Trott, Joanna Rowsell and none other than Sir Bradley Wiggins.
And that last name should ring alarm bells for the other teams. Yes, that’s right. Team Wiggins is ready to rock Revolution for the first time. And so our cover star was confirmed…
We’ve pulled out all the stops for the arrival of the ‘Mod Squad’, laying down a metaphorical red carpet in the form of this awesome illustration by Peter Strain.
Fortunately, we managed a quick chinwag with Wiggo himself, as well as star rider Andy Tennant. We also got the lowdown on Olympic preparations from Heiko Salzwedel, the man hoping to steer Team GB to another triumphant trophy haul in Rio 2016. For just £3 you can bag yourself a copy if you’re lucky enough to be heading down to Derby Arena.
Regular readers will know we produce the event programmes for the Revolution Series and we’re delighted to be working with FACE partnership again on the forthcoming season.
