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.
