Back by popular demand, the City of Newport News and THR Cycling are again joining forces for the 2023 Newport News Twilight Criterium! An elite, amateur bicycle racing event sanctioned by USA Cycling.
The Newport News Twilight Criterium offers eight races for men and women of varying ages and expertise, including a free Kid’s Fun Race for children ages 3 – 9 years.

The short uphill and fast downhill course, along with twilight, dusk and dark conditions will be sure to challenge all cyclists from beginner to elite.
