The Future Stars:
Whilst making sure the sport has spectator appeal is crucial for its growth
it is also crucial to develop the stars of the future. Revolution provides the
perfect competitive arena for the development of our future stars in the:
Future Stars Competition
The new Future Stars competition kicked off in style at Revolution 9 with
some excellent racing and action throughout the girls and the boys events. With
Raleigh as the new sponsor the incentive for the young riders is huge as a 2006
Raleigh Road Bike is up for grabs to the two competition winners.
After the first event the favorites in both the girls and
the boys have made their mark on the competition. Peter Kennaugh has shown that
he is the man to beat by claiming victory in all three of the boys’ races to
give him the full 45 points after one event! Rhys Lloyd is his closest
challenger but is already 14 points adrift.
The competition is much tighter in the girls event as Lucy
Richards and Alex greenfield are only 3 points apart after Revolution 9. In the
5km Scratch race and the Devil Endurance Richards took victory over Greenfield.
However, Richards faltered in the 1 mile dash coming fourth whilst Greenfield
came second behind Katie Curtis. This leaves it wide open ahead of Revolution 10
with Greenfield and Richards the ones to watch.
Raleigh Sponsors The Future Stars
Raleigh, one of the UK’s best known bike manufacturers has cemented their
commitment to youth development in sport by sponsoring the Revolution Future
The Future Stars competition has always provided some of
the very best racing at Revolution with last year's competition coming down to
the wire between Steven Burke and Andy Tennant. Since then Tennant has gone on
to become the Junior Individual Pursuit World Champion. He will this year
graduate to the elite racing along with last season’s winner Steven Burke and
third placed Adam Blythe. This leaves the door open for the new emerging talent
to make their mark and gain valuable experience in front of the 3000 plus
Raleigh’s involvement has ensured that the Future Stars will continue to grow
with competitions now in place for both the girls and boys.
How it Works:
For Season 3 both the male and female racers will compete in the Future Stars
Series fighting it out to be the Raleigh Future Stars Champion.
At each Revolution event points will be awarded to the first 12 finishers in
each of the races. The races at each event will be:
1 Mile Dash
5km Scratch Race
At the end of each Revolution meeting the rider with the
largest number of points will be awarded the Raleigh Future Stars Series Leaders
Jersey which they will wear at the next Revolution. If the points are tied the
rider who finished ahead in the final Scratch Race will take the leaders jersey.
At the end of the Series the rider with the most points will be crowned the
Raleigh Future Stars Champion.

was created in 2003 by Face Partnership and the Manchester Velodrome to provide
a new style of cycling event in the UK, a style that would increase spectator
appeal and change the way people think about the sport.
With the creation of an action packed alternative race
programme featuring international road and track stars presented with a slick,
modern style the Cycling Revolution was born. The racing is fast and the
atmosphere is electrifying with music and lighting effects creating a superb
night of entertainment for cycling and non-cycling fans alike.
The Revolution is now getting ready for it's third
season and with more star riders and a unique feel to each event it continues to
attract capacity crowds to the Manchester Velodrome. Revolution is already
laying the foundations for the future with its future stars series and with
exciting plans for Season 3 the Revolution will only get better.
