Australia's Clarke repeats, repeat for Boise's McGrath 'not her role' at Criterium

Australia's Clarke repeats, repeat for Boise's McGrath 'not her role' at Criterium
Defending men's Twilight Criterium champion Hilton Clarke repeated as Champion Saturday in Boise, beating a crowded field of the best male riders in the country across the finish line.

Team Exergy Twenty16 rider Kimberly Wells took the women's race - as predicted by Exergy co-owner and two-time Olympic golf medalist Kristin Armstrong.

"We have a really talented team here this year," Armstrong said.

Boise's Kristin McGrath held the lead by a few seconds heading into the final lap, but the finish came down to three different women riding side-by-side until the final moments.

Each pro race featured a $15,000 purse - the second straight year the two races have had equal prize money.
