The London Nocturne 2013 – Teaser / No Spoilers from Mat Pennell on Vimeo.

The well established London Nocturne in Smithfield Market (London) was again buzzing with cycling fans as racing returned there for another year. With many of the riders in the Tour Series competing in the men’s race as well as Tour of Italy stage winner Alex Dowsett, that event was as expected, fast and furious.

After the selection was made at the front of the race, one that many top stars did not make it across to, Kiwi Tom Scully (Raleigh) outsprinted Alex Dowsett and Dean Downing. In the Women’s event Laura Trott beat Hannah Barnes (MG – MaxiFuel Pro Cycling) and Dani King.
