Friday 14 March 2014, Revolution Series 5 - Olympic Veledrome, Lee Valley
I have become a big cycling fan after always having a fascination with the sport from when Channel 4 first showed the Tour De France. Since then have seen big road races come to Suffolk and even saw the last stage of the Giro in Italy last year but have never managed to see track racing. I failed to get tickets to the Olympic track events and aslo was unlucky in the ballot for ticket for Glasgow later in the year so when I heard about the Revolution Series coming to the Olympic Velodrome I quickly got tickets.
And what a location, what a velodrome and Laura Trott made sure it was great night of racing - Olympic legacy is much talked about but it is alive and kicking here, iconic and inspiring arena and the number of young GB racers involved was another example of how the likes of Hoy, Wiggo, Cav and Trotty have and are still inspiring others to follow in their cycle tracks.
