The Revolution Championship at the Manchester Velodrome will see future stars, sprinters and endurance riders racing as part of a team. Young talent will get the chance to join heroes such as Chris Hoy and Mark Cavendish as both Future Stars and elite riders accumulate team points across championship races at each event.
