Photo Gallery: Athens Twilight Criterium

This weekend, the Classic City held the Athens Orthopedic Clinic Twilight Criterium, hosted by Michelob Ultra. This bike race and festival extravaganza brought out many to the streets of downtown Athens. There, they were able to partake in what the event had to offer: food, music, drinks, and the spectacle that is hundreds of bikers racing laps around the city at impressive speeds.

People of all ages, shapes, and sizes, from children to college kids, to grandparents were drawn out to observe American criterium racing in the flesh. Flooding the streets to gaze as the men and women compete in their respective 80k and 40k races.

Of course, the bikers aren’t racing purely for the entertainment of the spectators. They’re all there for the same reason, bragging rights and a chance to earn the illustrious cash prize.

Food, music, and sports. What more could one ask for? The Twilight Criterium is truly something worth seeing, especially in the football offseason.
