In a sellout event, a full audience packed inside the Manchester Velodrome for the first of the winter 2004/05 Revolution Track Series. All of Britain's world champions and Olympic medal winners were honoured at the event, including those who were not riding (Vicky Pendleton and Brain Steel, for example). Britain's Paralympic cyclists were also honoured.

Olympic pursuit champion Brad Wiggins won the opening scratch race with Chris Hoy winning the sprint. Rob Hayles, who with Wiggins took home bronze in the Madison at Athens, won the points race, while Chris Newton won the four-station pursuit match, and Jamie Staff the keirin.

The apple cart was upset slightly by Ed Clancy and Tom Wight winning the madison kilometre event, but this simply shows the strength of the upcoming talent in the British team, and the fact that they are not overawed by racing against a whole slew of Olympic medallists!

Asked about his future plans, Bradley Wiggins said, "Well, I rather fancy going out for a curry tomorrow night." But he then reiterated plans to concentrate on the road for a year or two, before returning to the track to defend his Olympic gold in Beijing.
