The annual Edwardsville Rotary Criterium returns to the streets of Downtown Edwardsville this Saturday for the fifth time.  About 300 cyclists from 11 different states will be among those competing in the USA Cycling Sanctioned event.

Race Director S.J. Morrison says the $10,000 purse isn’t the only reason the cyclists are coming out for the event this year.
