Earlier this year, event organizers were excited to announce the support of new Title Sponsor Bailey Glasser LLP, whose participation is helping bring the 34th season of professional cycling back to the streets of downtown Boise. Bailey Glasser is joined by presenting sponsor Bronco Motors and several other event partner agencies, which can be viewed here.
“All of us at Bailey Glasser are excited about sponsoring this year’s Boise Twilight Criterium,” said Benjamin Schwartzman, partner at Bailey Glasser. “We know how much this race means to the Boise community and its growing role as a regional/national destination for elite sports and recreation. We could not be more thrilled to support such a signature event.”
Fans can kick off the weekend of cycling by joining the Twilight Trifecta kickoff celebration, Friday, July 9, at JUMP. Meet Pro teams and cyclists who will fill the outdoor Autograph Alley, enjoy live music from Boise’s Red Light Challenge, step into the beverage garden or explore the JUMP facility from 4 pm-7 pm. In addition, the Paralympic Cycling National Championship Time Trial award podium will take place at 5:00 pm outdoors at JUMP. (Time Trial takes place earlier Friday in Glenns Ferry, ID.)
