Australian World Champions team up at the Edinburgh Nocturne
Garmin Transitions pro CAMERON MEYER will be one of the star attractions when the second edition of the Edinburgh Nocturne takes place on July 3rd. The Nocturne series, that kicks off with the HTC Smithfield Nocturne later this month, is a brilliant urban cycling event that combines the cream of British and continental riders in top-class racing while allowing commuters to take part in the folding bike race on the same course.

Meyer is the first Pro rider to confirm his attendance for the Edinburgh event and will be aiming to continue his great form at the Grassmarket after helping his Garmin team-mate David Millar to victory last year.

“I had a fantastic time in Edinburgh last year especially helping Dave take a home victory” Meyer said. “I loved the course and the atmosphere of the Nocturne so can’t wait to get back and race.”

With a strong performance at the Giro d’Italia last month and victory in the track World Championships Points Race earlier in the year, Meyer will start as one of the favourites.

“Cameron brings tremendous calibre to the event so we are delighted to welcome him back” said James Pope of Face Partnership. “He’ll have some good form following the Giro and his talent on the track makes him well suited to crit racing - the crowds can expect plenty of entertainment.”

With Millar lining up on the Tour de France start line on 3rd July Meyer will be joined this time by fellow Australian and Junior World Champion Luke Durbridge.

Durbridge stormed to victory in the road time trial at the Junior World Championships last year and Meyer is confident of his chances in Edinburgh,

“Luke is an exceptional talent” he commented. “He will fly on this course and I'm actually scared of how well he would go on it. The top British riders are going to be strong so we’ll work together to go for the win.”

The Elite Criterium will be the finale of a packed day of cycling entertainment which will begin with coverage of the Tour de France prologue shown live on a big screen in the Grassmarket.

The event is free to attend with several of the races also open to the public. For more information got to
