Race that starts with trackstands has proved one of the hits of this year's competition...

Back in October, when we posted an article about a bizarre track race from the United States called the Marymoor Crawl, we had no idea that it would turn into one of the most memorable events of this season's Revolution Series, which finished on Saturday in Manchester.

But that's exactly what happened, with event organisers FACE Partnership spotting our post and deciding to trial the format - to such success that it has quickly become a crowd pleasing addition to the programme.

What's more, something that began as an event at a regional track meet in Redmond, Washington State in the Pacific North West of the United States now regularly features, thanks to the adoption of it by the Revolution Series, world and Olympic champions from Great Britain and elsewhere.

On Saturday, Manchester saw the final staging of the race this season; sit back and enjoy the video.

Born in Scotland, Simon moved to London aged seven and now lives in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds with his miniature schnauzer, Elodie. He fell in love with cycling one Saturday morning in 1994 while living in Italy when Milan-San Remo went past his front door. A daily cycle commuter in London back before riding to work started to boom, he's been news editor at road.cc since 2009. Handily for work, he speaks French and Italian. He doesn't get to ride his Colnago as often as he'd like, and freely admits he's much more adept at cooking than fettling with bikes.
