Team L39ion took home top honors at the 2021 Athens Twilight Criterium race. Skylar Schneider won the women’s race with a time of 1:02:27 while Tyler Williams took the top spot in the men’s event behind a time of 1:42:02. Both of the winning riders race for team L39ion out of Los Angeles.
After being cancelled in 2020 the Athens Twilight Criterium came back with a bang welcoming thousands of spectators to the Athens streets for a weekend long event. Live music, food and even a VIP experience helped to cap off the end of summer. The large crowd was a pleasant surprise to certain racer’s.
“I want to thank everyone for coming out because this was the best crowd of the year,” Williams said.
The event, which was sponsored by Athens Orthopedic Clinic, grouped together over 20 races and was capped off by the women’s D1 Pro-1-2-3 and the men’s D1 Pro-1-2 on Saturday evening.
Schneider came out quick in the women’s race by taking an early lead and keeping it for most of the event. As the race went on a clear group of seven broke away from the rest of the racers.
