Brooks Penny farthing race!
In 2011 Nocturne and Brooks England will bring Penny Farthing racing (properly called ‘Ordinaries’) back to the streets of the City of London. Competitors from across the globe will descend on the historic Smithfield Market to battle it our across two action packed races:
RACE 1: The Brooks Penny Farthing Sprint
The sprint is all about speed and quite simply the fastest gent or lady to race the 1 mile distance will be the winner. Fast and furious, this will be the perfect build up to the main event.
RACE 2: The Brooks Ordinary Trophy
With an illustrious history the Grand Old Ordinary Trophy will once again be decided on the streets of the City of London. Our daring riders will race for 30 minutes and 5 laps across the challenging London circuit as they bid for glory and the coveted trophy.
