BOISE, Idaho — Plans are in progress for the Boise Twilight Criterium, a USA Crits and USA Cycling PRT event held in downtown Boise each year. The races are currently scheduled for July 10, 2021, according to a news release.

This year is the 34th season and organizers are looking forward to celebrating in the safest ways possible. The release says there are a lot of details still to be determined.

Right now, all details about public and spectator portions of the weekend are on hold as guidelines can change.

"We are putting the plans in place to have an amazing weekend with all the typical events and will continue to pivot and plan accordingly as the event draws closer," said Race Director Mike Cooley.

Organizers will release details about this year's event as they are confirmed. They are working with City, State and USA Cycling staff to ensure that all appropriate caution, health and safety measures are taken.

"We are eager to bring the Crit back to downtown and showcase world-class cycling in Idaho. We want everyone to know that health and safety are a priority, so we will be thoughtful and do so appropriately," said Cooley.

The Twilight Criterium's popularity has grown over the past 33 years, resulting in a full weekend of cycling events.

The event features a men's and women's professional cycling road race, a kid's race, a celebrity Boise Green Bike race and amateur road races. A vendor and fan expo are also held in Cecil D. Andrus Park.
