Criterium a big hit

Hundreds watch bike racers

On a hot summer day, 100 bicycle racers in 12 classes competed Sunday in the second annual Ketchum Criterium staged in the downtown area.

Organizer Greg Stock of Sun Summit estimated 500 to 700 spectators watched the top-flight racers Sunday evening. They were lined several deep along the course.

Billy Olson of Sun Valley Road & Dirt and Richard Feldman of Durance Cycleworks led Men’s 1/2.
