Newton returns for Nocturne

Back in 2005, Chris Newton destroyed the opposition in the Shropshire Star Newport Nocturne. Despite driving rain he lapped the top class field, taking most of the primes along the way. The team captain has already had a brilliant year on the road, having recently secured the Premier Calendar series, but the season is far from over and Chris wants to take the Nocturne title again.

"I'm really looking forward to riding the Newport Nocturne again," said Newton. "The past 2 years seem to have flown by. The event has probably the biggest crowds we ever race in front of, and the atmosphere the crowds help to create on the night is second to none. With the Beijing Olympics now only just around corner an event like this is ideal for getting used to the sort of media attention riders will face in China."
