American sprinter Tyler Farrar and Garmin-Sharp team-mate Nathan Haas will line up for the Schwalbe Elite Men’s Criterium at the 2014 Jupiter London Nocturne around Smithfield Market on Saturday, June 7.
Farrar and Haas will take to the start line against a very strong field of international and British riders, which also includes Team Sky’s Josh Edmondson and Chris Sutton.
Double Olympic champion Ed Clancy will be looking to upset the international riders to take a first win for Rapha Condor JLT at the event, and NFTO fields Adam Blythe, Dean Downing and James McCallum.
A packed line-up for the Elite women’s criterium boasts over 70 riders, headed up by on-form team pursuit world champion Katie Archibald (Pearl Izumi).
Last year the free-to-watch event attracted 15,000 spectators, who lined the 1.1-kilometre circuit in and around the historic Smithfield Market. Tom Scully and Hannah Barnes won last year’s elite criterium events.
Meanwhile, Jupiter Asset Management has signed up to be the title sponsor of the 2014 London Nocturne.
