London Nocturne race entries open
June 7 City of London evening criterium expected to fill up fast
Race entries are now open for the 2014 London Nocturne on Saturday June 7.
Organisers have published the provisional programme for the evening of racing in the City of London, which includes penny-farthing and folding bike racing as well as an urban cyclocross race and elite men’s and women’s events.
Races now open for online entries include the women's criterium, Leigh Day Criterium (category 2/3/4), folding bike race, penny farthing race and the Ignitr city criterium.
This will be the eighth edition of the London Nocturne, which has become a fixture on the London cycling calendar, attracting large crowds to the Smithfield Market circuit.
Previous winners include Team Sky’s Ian Stannard, and Movistar’s Alex Dowsett. Hannah Barnes has dominated the women’s event, and crossed the line first last year. However, the race was initially awarded to Laura Trott before an appeal from her MG-Maxifuel team led to Barnes’ position being reinstated.
