Latest to announce a return to the Revolution race series is Dani King of Cylance Pro Cycling. Joining the World and Olympic track champion are her Cylance teammates, Rachele Barbieri and Kirsten Wild.
The 26-year-old has established herself on the road during a three-year break from competing in the Revolution arena and admitted that competition will be tough. However, having the speed of Barbieri and Wild on her side is an added bonus.
“Obviously Kirsten and Rachele are both the sprint types so I think it could work quite well, they will bring the pure, pure speed,” King said. “Plus they’re both highly experienced and tactically amazing track riders, so I think it will be fun.”
King is among an impressive list of WWT racers to take to the series this winter, including the Lizzie Deignan and Amalie Dideriksen Boels-Dolman duo that announced their involvement in early August. With that in mind, the series will be nothing less than a spectacle of fireworks and action.
