The popular Eroica movement in Europe and the United States has spilled over to criterium racing. Regulations stipulate that all bikes must be built before 1987, with similar clothing regulations to boot. Brooks England is bringing back its Retro Criterium event at the Jupiter Nocturne in London’s Smithfield Market this weekend.
Here’s a video from last year’s inaugural event:
The Jupiter London Nocturne combines elite and feature races alongside a festival atmosphere that runs into the night. More than 10,000 people will head to Smithfield Market to witness an action-packed race program, which will include the traditional Folding Bike and Penny Farthing Races. The main events are the men’s and women’s Elite Criteriums, which will feature a host of British and international cycling stars.Tweet Print
