The Twilight Criterium is a tentpole athletic event in Boise that draws out the inner road racer in practically everyone. Yearly, hundreds of athletes travel to Boise, where they compete for cash and glory around a track that cuts through downtown. Thousands more gather to watch the action, which includes events for kids and men's and women's (Boise-famous) celebrity races hosted by Boise GreenBike. This year promises to be extra noteworthy, with notorious racing legend Lance Armstrong airing an episode of his podcast THEMOVE and joining the Gran Fondo Hincapie—a massive group ride where the ams and locals ride with the pros—the day after the big race.
