Trott victorious at London Nocturne

Laura Trott triumphed for Wiggle Honda Pro Cycling at the

IG London Nocturne 

in what was the British team’s first event on home soil.

The 21-year-old took a photo-finish victory from Hannah Barnes of MG – MaxiFuel Pro Cycling in the Elite Women’s Criterium.

Trott’s team-mate and

fellow Olympic gold-medallist

Dani King, 22, was third for

the Sir Bradley Wiggins-backed outfit.

Tom Scully won the men’s race.

The Team Raleigh rider narrowly beat Movistar’s Alex Dowsett – who

took a time trial victory at last month’s Giro d’Italia

– on the line in a tight finish that saw Dean Downing (Madison Genesis) come third.

The event was held on a specially-constructed 500m track at London’s Smithfield Market, with the women’s event lasting 30 minutes plus five laps and the men’s 50 minutes plus five laps.
