19 December - Vodafone Arena, Melbourne

 

Revolution continues in Australia

Following a successful opening edition of the Revolution track series, Australia’s cycling stars will receive plenty of Christmas cheers when they wrap up 2007 at Revolution 2 at Vodafone Arena on Wednesday 19th December.

The past month has been a busy period for Australian cyclists with Sydney and Beijing World Cup’s for the track stars and the annual summer criterium races for the road stars; however they will converge in Melbourne for the final track event of the year.

In a successful opening edition the highlights of Revolution 1 included:

* A shock loss to Olympic champion Anna Meares in the women’s sprint, with Dutch rider Yvonne Hijgenaar pulling off a surprise win. Meares returned to claim victory in the keirin

* A winning double to Australian points race champion Belinda Goss with wins in the women’s scratch and points races.

The women’s line up is really strong, with Kerrie Meares joining sister Anna, along with Liz Georgouras and Kaarle McCulloch. The endurance program will feature World Cup road winner Rochelle Gilmore, three-time world junior champion Josephine Tomic and talented young New South Wales Institute of Sport rider Sky-Lee Armstrong.
