Hi avid readers, I am back in London now from where I'm based. It is a rare sunny day and I'm headed to smithfield markets (nearest tube station Farringdon) for the IG Markets criterium.
If you are around London drop by as it is a free event. Cycling stars Cameron Meyer, Matt Wilson, Leigh Howard, Alex Dowsett and Russell Downing will be racing.
Cam Meyer is the Australian time trial champion coming off good form from the Giro and won the Tour Down Under earlier this year. Leigh Howard comes off winning a stage in the Tour of California whilst supporting Milan-San Remo winner and team mate Matt Goss in team HTC Highroad.
Alex Dowsett and Russell Downing represent British stars from UCI professional Team Sky. This event highlights Team Rapha Condor Sharp, Team Raleigh as well as local stars from London cafe Look Mum No Hands - where you can catch good coffee and lots of spring classics & grand tour coverage
Event photos to come shortly from the 10 lap 1.1km criterium. Looks to be a great race in store today
