Glasgow gears up for Revolution finale

Commonwealth Games venue Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome playing host to the racing

Glasgow's new Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome is preparing to host the Revolution Series finale on Saturday.

The new velodrome, part of the Emirates Arena, will be a key venue for the forthcoming 2014 Commonwealth Games.

A strong line-up of Scottish sprinting talent will compete at the sold-out venue on Saturday while 12 teams will battle it out for the Elite Championship.

Revolution's move to Glasgow is the first stage of an agreement signed last year to utilise the first-class cycling facilities throughout the UK. Talks are being held to take the Revolution to the Olympic velodrome in London.

Speaking in February last year, Lord Sebastian Coe said: "The signing of this agreement is a fantastic step forward for cycling in the UK. The velodrome in the Olympic Park will leave a legacy in east London, and with this agreement in place it is a great step forward to extend this legacy nationwide."
