Speak Media was lucky enough to be invited to the headquarters of RCUK (Road Cycling UK) on Saturday night to take in an evening of fast and furious bike racing in the heart of the City of London. The event took place in the online mag’s first floor office overlooking Smithfield Market, the route for this year’s London Nocturne.
The night’s racing included events for track bikes, folding Bromptons and even a penny farthing race – all leading up to the Elite Men’s and Women’s criteriums. Laura Trott, double Olympic medallist brought home the Women’s trophy for her Wiggle Honda team, while British rider Alex Dowsett was pipped to first place in the Men’s event by Kiwi rider Tom Scully.
We finished the evening with a head-to-head WattBike race. While the competition was fierce, after an evening of complimentary food and beer the less said about our final times the better.
