Olympic Champions  Geraint Thomas and Laura Trott will headline a stellar rider line up as the Revolution Series returns to the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome in Glasgow on Saturday 28 November.

It will be the first time back racing in Glasgow for Geraint Thomas since taking victory in the Commonwealth Games road race in 2014.

“I've got great memories of Glasgow from the Commonwealth Games on the road” he said. “The Scottish fans are great and they are quite vocal so I'm expecting a real good atmosphere at Revolution”.

Geraint returned to the track at round 3 in London (14November) and is now looking to build some form ahead of Glasgow, “It was hard going after my long break. I got stuck in and hopefully when I return in Glasgow I can do better. It's the biggest break I've ever had in the off season and I made the most of it but it's time to knuckle down now.”

Geraint will partner with Ian Stannard in Glasgow as the pair try to move Team Sky up the Championship table, which is currently being led by Team Pedalsure. Also featuring in the Elite Championship will be Gent Six Day winner, Iljo Keisse as well as Andy Tennant (Team Pedalsure), Adam Blythe (Orica-GreenEDGE), Owain Doull, Jon Dibben (Team Wiggins) and Marcel Kalz, Nico Hesslich (Maloja Pushbikers) – click here to see the full rider list.

Trott and Archibald have shown excellent form so far this season as they build towards the Rio Olympics claiming three European titles each as well as victories at the first Track World Cup at the end of October. They will come up against an international field including Laurie Berthon (France), Sarah Ingelbrecht (Belgium) and Amalie Winther Olsen (Denmark).
