I'm guessing there will be many more of these stories this year (Olympics and all that) so I thought it merited a thread (The Team Wiggins Cav thread is a bit specific). Aware that Hoy is a Scot and that and that the Brit tag may "upset" some. No offence intended - it just seems to be the name the media have adopted.

What no Newton?

Back to Hoy - the next Revolution is going to be a tasty prelude to March....

Quote:
"Revolution 19 is set to be our big sprint event," commented promoter James Pope. "We have all the Keirin world champions from the last four years with Hoy, Bos, Mulder and Staff in the line up. The quality is superb, the Dutch sprinters won the Team Sprint at the Beijing World Cup and will be coming off the back of their National Track Championships, so they will be in great form. We're also looking forward to having Chris Hoy back at the event, particularly now that he will race against Bos. Revolution will also provide a crucial opportunity to race for the riders who aren?t going to the LA World Cup a week later. A lot of these riders aren't going to the LA World Cup including Bos and Hoy" said Pope. "With the Worlds in Manchester at the end of March tensions are rising so Revolution will provide a crucial opportunity to race in front of the Manchester crowds."

Newton was there as was Rob Hayles. Craig McClean doing standing starts with legs like tree trunks...The lad loved it and in what other sport could you have that accessibility? Down in the middle changing with the GB team then riding round a world class facility. Perhaps other sports should take note and wonder why they don't have world champions!

Lol - she'd better be careful or someone will realise she's a cybernetic organism from the future!

My nephew likes star-spotting as much as he likes the cycling! Have the new boards bedded in yet or are they still moving a bit?

I wasn't young enough to ride but the lad says it was fine (mind you he's only ever ridden the boards once) and the squad seemed to be flying!

I've always thought accessibility is one of cycling's big, big pluses. Remember seeing Newton, Queally, Manning and Hayles just hanging around at the side of the road at the 2005 Nocturne - all in their rainbow jerseys. Quite surreal.

At Flanders last year we were out and about in the lanes on the Friday and we came across T-Mobile (including Roger Hammond) out for a training bash (even managed to keep up for as bit  Wink ). On the Saturday you get to ride the course and be cheered on by 1000's of spectators! I know it's not an entirely fair comparison but what are the chances of getting to have a kick around at Wembley the Friday before the FA cup?

Good god is it that busy in Flanders now and it was only a few years ago that I could ride parts of the course and nod and wave to the few Belgians out on the day before,,saturday
I gave the "RONDE" the miss about 7 years ago when it got stupidly busy on the Sunday and just go mainly to the mid week races.

However you were discussing Team GB and I wish them LUCK

No worries - just gassing til the next piece news comes along. I reckon the spectators for the Saturday sportive do number in the 1000s, but that's over a day and stretched along the course.

More good news for the future http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/other_sports/cycling/7230522.stm

Bellis looks like he may well be our next big(ish) thing (once we get past the Cav, Swift, Thomas factor I guess!)

I think it's Peter Kennaugh who's going to be bigger than any of them, and I've been boring on about him intermittently here for a while. He won the UIV at the Ghent Six Day with Adam Blyth and won in both Berlin and Copenhagen with Bellis. He is still only 18 and is a former junior world champion on the track and current national junior champion on the road.

Yes, I don't mean to play down Bellis' abilities by praising Kennaugh. I think these two are a very natural combination for a madison and I really want to be there when they surely do it together at the London Oympics. For all Cav's strengths I am yet to be convinced that the madison is a natural event for him, and I fear that for him the track is just going to be a distraction this year.

A shout for Ian Stannard too, who was a stagiare at T-Mobile last season and has a contract with Landbouwkrediet-Tönissteiner this year.

I know CG has posted the Newton stuff elsewhere, but a few more snippets from the BBC:

GB cyclists earn World Cup glory

Chris Newton clinched the World Cup points race title in Denmark
British track cyclists Chris Newton, Rebecca Romero and Victoria Pendleton claimed glory at the season's final World Cup event in Copenhagen.

Newton's third place in the men's points race behind Pim Ligthart and Rafal Ratajczyk was enough to earn him overall World Cup victory.

Romero won the women's 3,000m pursuit in Denmark, while Pendleton claimed silver in the women's 200m sprint.

Great Britain's men missed out on a team sprint medal, finishing fourth.

More snippets

Britain claimed the World Cup team pursuit crown and Chris Hoy won the overall men's Kierin title in the final event of the season in Copenhagen.

Ed Clancy, Paul Manning, Geraint Thomas and Steven Burke beat Denmark to win gold and wrap up the title, while Hoy also ended the season with a gold.

Victoria Pendleton and Shanaze Reade also triumphed in the women's sprint.
