Elia Viviani and Peter Kennaugh to race Revolution for Team Sky
Last Updated: 03/09/19 4:54pm
Olympic champions Elia Viviani and Peter Kennaugh will represent Team Sky in the Revolution Champions League in Manchester on 25-26 November.
Team Sky are one of seven UCI WorldTour teams taking part and will be looking to get off to a strong start in the two-leg competition.
Viviani proved his track credentials by winning the Olympic omnium title in Rio, while Kennaugh was an Olympic team pursuit champion in 2012.
Viviani said: "If we go with a good condition in the last part of November and for the final at the start of December, then I think we have a really strong team with lots of Olympic champions, so I think that Team Sky could be very competitive.
"However, I also think Team WIGGINS will be very strong. They have Owain [Doull] in the team this year and with all their other riders, they will be really strong on the track."
WIGGINS are among five teams who have qualified for the Revolution Champions League from the UK Championship.
Tickets are sold out for the Saturday evening session in Manchester but are still available for the Saturday afternoon and Friday evening sessions.
