2013 Exergy Twilight Criterium
EVENT DESCRIPTION: The Exergy Twilight Criterium, one of the nation’s premier bicycle races, strives to attract nationally and internationally acclaimed cyclists as well as to provide competition opportunities for cyclists with varying degrees of ability. The Criterium is dedicated to promoting cycling as a life-time sport and providing the Treasure Valley community with an entertainment venue in downtown Boise where spectators of all ages can enjoy the races and associated events.

The Twilight Criterium was inaugurated in 1987 as a grassroots effort to create a premier cycling event that would attract more participants to the sport; provide an enjoyable family-oriented event for the community; and drive business for downtown merchants and restaurants by attracting people to downtown Boise. Enthusiasm and support for the race quickly grew after the first year. The electric atmosphere and fast-paced, high-stakes drama was a big hit with spectators and participants alike. Today more than 20,000 boisterous spectators flock to the streets of downtown Boise to enjoy what has become one of Boise’s major summer attractions.
