The Capital Cycling Club and Raleigh All-Stars has announced the inaugural News & Observer Twilight Criterium in Raleigh, NC on Friday, May 27. The race will be held around Raleigh's historic Moore Square, with the flat and fast one mile course encircling numerous popular night-spots. A $10,000 Men's Pro 1,2 and a $5,000 Women's 1,2,3 prize purse will ensure a lively evening of racing. This festival of cycling will include live music, and the proceeds will benefit the Habitat for Humanity of Wake County.
The News & Observer Twilight Criterium fills a gap in the weekend of NRC racing along the East Coast, sandwiched between Thursday's Richmond, VA Cap Tech Classic and Saturday's Kelly Cup in Baltimore, MD.
