The London-based bicycle manufacturer will create two unique Condor Lavoro track bikes as the grand prize for both the men’s and women’s event. Each frame will be hand illustrated and painted by Condor’s lead designer, Ben Spurrier.
Spurrier is utilising the London skyline as his inspiration. “The Nocturne takes place in the shadow of London’s greatest buildings. As a Londoner I wanted to celebrate the capital and the muddle of historic and modern architecture that we ride beneath every day.”
Spurrier has begun working on the frames, ready for the event on 10th June. The final element will be the winners’ names, which will be painted onto the bikes on the night.
Condor, whose pro team have won the elite race two years running, was a founder of the Nocturne back in 2007.
“We are delighted to be part of the Nocturne and to support both the men’s and women’s fixed gear criterium. Our roots are embedded in track cycling, and fixed gear criteriums—although relatively new—are born out of the sport. The racing is exciting. It’s fast and evolving so rapidly. The unique racing deserves a unique prize.”, explained Condor’s managing director, Grant Young.
