The fifth annual Sun Summit Ketchum Criterium screamed around corners and held on tight in west Ketchum on Father's Day Sunday.

Robert Schwing of Sun Summit in Ketchum said "turnout was good" and that the busy event was "pretty smooth."

Throngs of spectators lined the streets near the finish line on the corner of Fourth and Washington streets.

In the men's Pro division, Brian Cavanaugh of Lactic Acid Cycling took the win. Local Whit Albright finished fifth in that highly competitive field.

As expected, the Sun Summit Junior team dominated their categories. Max Durtschi repeated on last year's win in the 10-15 year old class. Troy Quesnel of Sun Valley Road & Dirt also captured his 4/5 class for the second year straight.

In the notorious Cruiser class, the winner was unknown as race official was run over by an out-of-control cruiser. The judge was temporarily incapacitated and unable to post a result, organizer Greg Stock said.
