Orchestrated manoeurves in the dark

Some say the city comes alive at night. The area around Smithfield meat market certainly did on Saturday night. We love this event as it brings competition cycling of the highest order literally to the streets of London. Strangely it's never that warm for a June night but the atmosphere is electric.

One of the aspect we love about this series of races in the variety of events on offer. It's amazing to see Penny Farthings being raced over the old cobbles of the meat market as well witnessing the pros going hammer and tongs at it. Good to see such a strong turn out for the Women's Criterium event! Thanks to Mitch Payne for his, as ever, excellent images.
