CYCLING: Revell books place on Mallorca trip
6:00pm Tuesday 24th December 2013 in Sport
CHARLIE Revell of the Somerset Road Club will be jetting off to Mallorca for a training camp with Team Sky in early February after winning a competition organised by the professional cycling team.
Jaguar launched the competition in September by inviting cyclists of all ages and abilities to join one of 15 group rides from their dealerships across the country.
Revell, a 28-year-old 2nd Category rider from Taunton, impressed at his event and won through to the finals at the Fen End circuit in Warwickshire for a testing day on two wheels and four.
After a timed drive on a coned course, Revell contested a seven lap, ten mile time trial around the race circuit with Team Sky’s Performance Advisor Shane Sutton providing words of support and encouragement.
And he took first place on aggregate to book his trip.
