Revolution Series has confirmed dates for all four rounds of the 2013-14 season, which are included on the UCI (International Cycling Union) calendar for the first time.

The 11th season of the world's premier elite cycling league begins on Saturday, 26th October at the National Cycling Centre in Manchester.

The series heads north for Round 2 and a second visit to the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome in Glasgow on 30th November following a successful debut event there last month.

Round 3 will return to Manchester, providing the New Year's first dose of elite cycling action on 4th January.

Round 4 takes place on 25th January: Talks are at an advanced stage with Lee Valley VeloPark to host this final round at the Olympic Velodrome.

Last season was the most successful yet for Revolution Series: all four rounds sold out months in advance as the appetite for elite track cycling continues to grow.

Inclusion on the UCI calendar is a significant step forward for the series. It will attract even more of the world's best track cyclists and make the competition all the more intense.

Riders will be fighting for UCI ranking points by performing strongly at the Revolution Series, which in turn will help them to qualify for World Championships and Olympic Games.

FACE Partnership MD James Pope said: "Changes to UCI structure mean we can achieve Class 1 ranking next season without having to compromise the Revolution format.

"UCI points being on offer will add an extra dimension and enhance the calibre of the riders. We're really excited our events will contribute to the Worlds, and ultimately the Olympics, qualification process."

Round 1: 26th October - National Cycling Centre, Manchester

Round 2: 30th November - Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome, Glasgow
