Athens Orthopedic Clinic Twilight Criterium 2023 Highlight Show

Race number one of the American Criterium Cup: Speed Week's Athens Orthopedic Clinic Twilight, presented by Michelob Ultra, and Visit Athens in beautiful Athens, Georgia. The course is a classic, fast four-corner crit at just one kilometer and 18 feet gain per lap. The speed makes this race brutally hard, with a lap speed average of nearly 30 miles per hour. Professional athletes took to the course, with Alexis Ryan of L39ion of Los Angeles, riding without a team, winning against the odds, while the men's race came down to a nail-biting, bike-throw finish. Who won? Our ACC race recap breaks it down.
