The organisers of the Revolution Series have announced a partnership with a new exhibition taking place in Manchester next February, The Bike & Triathlon Show. Meanwhile, tickets for the first two rounds of this year’s Revolution Series have sold out, but there are still some available for the last of the three rounds to be held in Manchester, as well as for the season finale in Glasgow.
That event, which brings to an end the tenth season of Revolution with Olympic champions such as Ed Clancy, Peter Kennaugh and Steven Burke already confirmed for the series, takes place on 2 February, a fortnight before The Bike & Triathlon Show, held at Manchester Central on 16 and 17 February.
"Revolution has seen a massive surge in interest in cycling with tickets already sold out for the first two events so I think The Bike and Triathlon Show will be very well received in Manchester,” said James Pope of Revolution organisers, Face Partnership.
“We're delighted to partner with the event and promote the show to the Revolution spectators across the season."
Stephen Shannon, MD of Hamerville Media Group , which owns the The Bike and Triathlon Show, added: "Everyone involved in The Bike & Triathlon Show is looking forward to teaming up with the Revolution Series this season.
"As a Manchester based show, it is vital for us to partner one of the iconic cycling spectacles this great city has to offer. We're also very keen to introduce the show to the Scottish audience when Revolution debuts at The Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome in Glasgow on 2nd February."
