team howies revolution 33

I was racing Revolution 33 in Manchester last Saturday. The racing started with a very fast devil scratch as usual. Somehow it started too fast and too hectic for me and I was out after only a few laps.

The next discipline was the 1k Madison time trial - a discipline I know well from Six-day Racing. Jon Mould and myself took off as the second team setting 0:58.89 as the fastest time so far. After waiting for 6 more teams to finish we were still the fastest taking a prestigious win for the Team in the discipline.

The points races at the Revolution are always a team discipline with 3 riders in a team. Adam Duggelby of our team managed to be in a group of three to make up one lap on the peloton soI worked hard to get him in the position for the sprint. He made up some distance, but finished just behind Russel Downing of Sky.

It was a very fast night of racing with a very good crowd in Manchester. I hope to have another chance to race for Team howies at the next Revolution on the 19th of November. With Sky gearing up for the next race with Geraint Thomas, the pace is set to be very hard.
