As you might expect Cyclostats has a preference for timed events. As such, the Revolution series has always been a bit hit and miss in terms of providing juicy data. The first round was exceptional with the women’s omnium bolstering the stats but round two is a little less satisfying. In fact the only traditional timed event is the men’s 200m during qualification for the sprint competition. The appearance of world champ Francois Pervis and German Max Levy ensures the quality is there and several Bit will also feature.
There is no Jason Kenny, but Phil Hindes and Callum Skinner will have a blast out. It will be interesting to see how close to his altitude-assisted sub-10 performance Hindes can get at sea-level. Chris Pritchard, Lewis Oliva and Jon Biggin also feature. The latter, a former power lifter, has made great strides under Kevin Stewart and he must have a good shot at bettering his 10.704 pb at Revolution.
