Criterium a big
On a hot
summer day, 100 bicycle racers in 12 classes competed Sunday in the
second annual Ketchum Criterium staged in the downtown area.
Greg Stock of Sun Summit estimated 500 to 700 spectators watched the
top-flight racers Sunday evening. They were lined several deep along the
Lightner, Men’s Class 3 runner-up in the Ketchum Criterium. Express

Wood of New Zealand and Liza Rachetto of Boise, two competitors in the
recent HP Women’s Challenge bicycle race, led the Women’s Pro
Olson of Sun Valley Road & Dirt and Richard Feldman of Durance
Cycleworks led Men’s 1/2.
Summit’s Pete Ross used what he called superior tactics—cutting
through an alley—to win the Cruiser Single Speed fun class.
