Revolution - Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome

On Saturday, 31st January I visited one of my favourite places - The Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome - in Glasgow.  For once (sadly) I was not there for volunteering duties, and just as a spectator.   It was a little weird, but enjoyable all the same!  One thing I enjoy about visits to the velodrome is the temperature!  I think it is around 28/29oC, so it was very nice to escape from the chilly Scottish weather.

I hadn't been to a Revolution event before, so wasn't sure what to expect, however, I knew I was going to see some good racing, some star names and some stars of the future.  Among the stars in attendance were Lizzie Armitstead, Dame Sarah Storey and Jason Kenny.  Sir Chris Hoy was also in attendance and was subject of a trackside interview.  Amongst other things, he was talking about his future plans to participate at the 24 hour Le Mans event....
