Star riders Mark Cavendish, Michael Morkov (who briefly held the KOM jersey this year in his 1st Tour De France) and Leif Lampater headed up the team last year, helping inspire numerous race wins throughout the series and an overall 3rd place finish.

Our track team will be returning to race in the 10th series of Revolution this weekend.

We've got 4 talented junior riders from the Welsh National squad riding in the Future Stars event who will race alongside professional riders in four track meets over the winter.

Previous Future Stars have gone on to win Olympic gold medals this year and with Wales producing current Olympic and World cycling champions, Revolution will be a great place for our Welsh team to battle it out against cycling's giants.

Pete has even tweaked this years team kit to include elements of the Welsh flag for our riders to fly in.

6 Olympic gold medalists, the World road champion and Tour De France riders rode last winter and with more big names set to join the team this season, we roll onto the boards in front of a sell-out crowd at Manchester on October 27th with race highlights on ITV4 after every event.

Pine. Rubber. Lycra and speed.

The Sideburns of Glory t-shirt was a big hit. Poor Mike has been keeping the printshop lights burning long into the night trying to catch up.

It's all been for a good cause though, with £5 from every tee going to the Dave Rayner fund (more on that here).

This weekend it's The Marquis of Cavendish's turn to put us all on the edge of our seats as he faces 9 trips to the top of Box Hill before the final dash for the line in the Olympic road race.

We'd already drawn this up and thought it'd be nice to share it for the weekend. We weren't planning to put this design on a t-shirt but if you tweet @howies with #MMXIImissile or like the design on Facebook over the weekend, we might ask Mike to print a few.

Andy Fenn & Mark Cavendish ride the Madison TT

It's been a while since our long drive to Manchester for Revolution, but the reminder of a signed rainbow jersey in the office keeps the evening's entertainment at the NCC on our minds.

We arrived to a lot of excitement and from the team atmosphere in the pit, you could tell it was going to be a special night.

Mark Cavendish arrived to join Jon Mould, Andy Fenn and Team howies' future stars, Elli Coster, Amy Hill, Rebecca Hunt, Zac May, Matt Cross and Owen James where the theme for the night would be smiles and speed.

The pace throughout the night was unimaginable - you almost forget they're riding fixed wheeled bikes as they fly over the boards, narrowly dodging the wheel of the bike in front.

Owen comes off

Despite a nasty off in the first boys Scratch, Owen rode on through the night with bruised thighs and hips on display through his Welsh shorts.

revolution round 2

This weekend's Revolution is set to be epic and we're off to Manchester to watch our team do what they do best - ride fast.

Checklist for the weekend :

✓ Tickets
✓ Camera
✓ Sat-Nav
✓ Custom team t-shirts
✓ World Road Champion

You may have caught the excitement here in the office a few weeks ago when we got the news. And now we're faced with a rare thrill of watching the World Road Race Champion, not only racing back on the track, but doing it for howies.

Bringing his experience to the team, Mark is riding with our Academy riders Andy Fenn and Jon Mould (who won the Madison TT at the last meet with Leif Lampater).

With so much talent on display, it is little surprise that demand for tickets has exceeded supply. If you didn't get any, don't worry, we'll report back from the event and you can cheer on the team on twitter with #goteamhowies.

Plus, ITV4 have you covered with hour-long highlights of Cav and the team on Monday 21st at 19.00 and on ITV Player shortly after.
