I cannot begin to convey how utterly distraught I am to be out of the UK for the 2010 Smithfield Nocturne.... Iv been to this event for the past two years and have never failed to have an epicly amazing time. Fast paced crit racing in the heart of the City of London? Check! Rapha goodies on offer at reduced prices? Check! Longest Skid compo? Check! Comedy Folding Bike race? CHECK! the list really does go on.... Its a great free day and never fails to warm my cockles when I see so many other people nutty about cycling out in town to enjoy the (usually hot) day. There is a ladies race with what looks to be a strong field with some of the countries fastest ladies taking part, and then in the evening theres the elite mens crit... which never fails to pull in some big names! The Rapha Condor Sharp team always put in a good showing, and expect a couple of Pro Tour riders added into the mix.
This year the Nocturne will be held on Saturday 19th June (thats less than a week away!) make sure you head down and submerse yourself in all things bicycle.
