18 February 2006
Manchester Velodrome, UK
come to expect crashes in this category and the girls once again treated us
to two spectacular smashes. First up was a multi-rider tumble mid-race
…..down went Greta, but to everyone’s surprise straight up with number
hanging on one pin, chasing the bunch.

of the main reasons the Revolution Series was created at the Manchester
Velodrome was to nurture young British cycling talent with the Future Stars
competition. The Future Stars provides a competitive framework for our up
and coming riders and provides them with the experience of riding in front a
capacity crowd in one of the world’s premier Velodrome venues.
season 3 the Future Stars has been sponsored by Raleigh, one of the UK’s
best known cycling names. Raleigh’s involvement has meant that Future
Stars competitions have been set up for both girls and boys. With Raleigh
team road bikes up for grabs as first prize the competition this season has
been intense with the winners being decided at Revolution12 on Saturday
the girl’s competition the Welsh have dominated with Cardiff based rider
Lucy Richards leading from the start. Richards took victory in the 5km
Scratch Race on Saturday to secure overall victory ahead of Welsh team mates
Katie Curtis and Alex Greenfield who finished second and third respectively.
very happy to have won the first Girls Future Stars” commented
Richards. “It has been a fanatastic experience”. With a
lot of racing ahead for Richards the future looks bright, “I’m
first year junior this year so I will probably be doing the women’s
national road series and I will do the women’s national track series again
because I really enjoyed doing the track series last year. I will probably
do the women’s national track champs again as well as the juniors track
champs. I will just have to see how my training goes.”
The Future Stars will be back in the third quarter of 2006 with Revolution season 4.
