January 28th, 2012 will see the season finale of the Revolution at the National Cycling Centre at the Manchester Velodrome, an event that will mark the end of the winter track season and kick off the final preparatory phase ahead of the London Olympic Games and one person who is looking forward to taking part in the event is Sir Chris Hoy, Great Britain’s Olympic hero. The World Track Championships as well as the London World Cup are the two final events ahead of the Olympic Games on home soil for the Scotsman and he is looking forward to getting back on the competitive circuit after a couple of months of training Down Under.

According to the Scotsman, the Revolution presents to all the cyclists an opportunity to get back to competitive racing and trying out their form ahead of the two major events before the Olympic Games. Sir Chris Hoy also added that the training camp that he has had at Perth, Australia has been long and hard and it would be good to get back to racing and see how the hard work put in the camp has paid off.

He went to add that the Revolution has always been a special event to him, particularly due to the strong home support that he receives and with a challenging sprint lineup confirmed for the Revolution, he is looking forward to beating off the competition and win the title. Hoy will have Ross Edgar, Matt Crampton and Jason Kenny, who was recently crowned as the sprint world champion for company when he takes to the tracks.

But Sir Chris Hoy is hopeful that he has worked hard enough during the camp Down Under to beat his compatriots and bring the title home to boost his confidence ahead of the major events this year.
