Wells Fargo Twilight Criterium offers big bucks for 20th anniversary

The Wells Fargo Twilight Criterium in Boise, Idaho, USA, which will celebrate its 20th anniversary on Saturday, July 22, 2006, has upgraded its prize purse to $25,000 in cash and merchandise.

"We believe the purse for our event is the largest on the West Coast for a one-day cycling event," said Mike Cooley, race director. "We'll be awarding over $15,000 in cash prizes for the Men's Pro 1/2 event and over $6,000 in cash for the Women's Pro 1/2/3."

The course consists of a one-kilometre rectangular loop, with four left-hand turns. Organisers predict close to 20,000 spectators will turn out to watch the race.

Competitors can register for the event from 1:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. on race day at the start/finish line located near Main and 8th Streets in downtown Boise, or online at www.sportsbaseonline.com
