IG London Nocturne from Torquee on Vimeo.
The award winning Rapha Nocturne makes its debut in Copenhagen on 19th August. The event has been hosted in London for over 10 years and is one of the World's biggest and best night time criterium races - in 2017 a new partnership with premium cycling and lifestyle brand Rapha will see the creation of the Rapha Nocturne Series with Nocturne events hosted in some of the world's most iconic cities.
A unique format sees riders including folding bikes, fixed gear, amateur and elite professionals racing across an action packed programme on exciting city centre race circuits. A full barriered race circuit, music, big screens, expo, bars and VIP hospitality area create a spectacular festival around the racing with plenty of entertainment for all the family and to keep the party going into the night.
The world's best elite riders will race for points across the series to determine the world's best city street racer. Copenhagen will host the final where the champions will be awarded the Rapha World Series Champions jersey.
Racers will be able to register for a number of different events running up to the elite race to get a unique experience of racing in closed roads in front of thousands of spectators and TV cameras. All competitors will get access to the rider village in Oksnehallen with free coffee from Rapha, mechanical support, rider gift pack and a free beer after the racing. There will also be an after party in Oksnehallen that all riders can attend.
