Intelligentsia Cup Twilight Criterium / by Rugile Kaladyte

I miss road racing. I especially those long weekends during my collegiate racing career that were filled with long car drives, endless eating, and of course, racing bikes until you thought your legs were going to tear apart. Looking to fill that void, I've been looking at bike races to photograph and stumbled across this twilight criterium. Not only is it so incredible that 108 starters in the Men's Cat Pro 1/2 race for 90 minutes, but also the fact that it happens at sunset and into the night; very rarely are they held in this kind of light. I was beyond excited to experiment with my flash and play with the darkness and little available light.
