Premium Belgian beer brand, Vedett, has been confirmed as the Official Beer Partner to the award-winning Rapha Nocturne London cycling event.

The partnership will see Vedett providing beer for the hospitality enclosure, rider village and public bars to help create a festival atmosphere in the heart of the City of London.

James Pope, CEO of Nocturne organisers, FACE Partnership said: “A big part of the Rapha Nocturne is the festival around the race circuit so we are excited to partner with Vedett to help us create a special experience for spectators and racers. As well as the rider village and hospitality enclosure we will be creating a fan village with a summer beer garden feel - spectators will be able to enjoy a few Vedett beers as they watch the racing unfold.”

John Wood, General Manager of Duvel Moortgat UK said: “We at Vedett are hugely excited to be partnering with such a tremendous event that will be a major summer experience in the City of London.  Our links with cycling are heartfelt and we sincerely look forward to everyone enjoying our delicious beers and watching some world class cycling.”

The Rapha London Nocturne will take place on Saturday 10th June returning to the spectacular circuit in the heart of the City of London. Starting and finishing on Cheapside with St Pauls Cathedral providing an iconic backdrop, the Rapha Nocturne will transform the Square Mile from business hub into a high-octane race circuit for a spectacular day and evening of bike racing and entertainment.

A packed race programme will include crowd favourites such as the Folding Bike Race and Penny Farthing Race, building up to the main elite races. Past winners have included Olympic Champions Ed Clancy and Geraint Thomas and the elite race will once again be a hotly fought contest between the UK’s top professional teams and guest international riders.
