The 2010 Blackpool Nocturne on Saturday August 21 will bring bike racing right into the heart of the city on a new course that will start and finish outside the town's famous Winter Gardens.
The one kilometre circuit will also see riders race through the ‘Brilliance' sound and light show on Birley Street creating a unique audio and visual feature to the new course.
The new Blackpool Nocturne circuit is going to be visually stunning" said James Pope from organisers Face Partnership. "The Brilliance light show will create a tunnel of lights and music which will create an extra dimension to the racing and will look fantastic once the darkness falls."
The futuristic Blackpool illuminations will have their full impact during the Elite Criterium which will be the highlight of the race programme.
Other races will include the Cycling Weekly Support Race, Youth Race, Dahon Folding Bike Race and a new feature race for 2010, the Blackpool Cycle Hire Challenge - details of the course and race programme are now published on www.blackpoolnocturne.com
