A cyclist participating in the Boulder Time Trial Series on Wednesday night was airlifted to St. Anthony Central Hospital in Denver with serious injuries after being hit by a car, according to the Colorado State Patrol.
Erin Bishop, 28, of Boulder, was driving her silver Saturn north on U.S. 36 when she turned left onto Lefthand Canyon Drive shortly after 6 p.m., hitting the cyclist, who was headed south on U.S. 36 as part of the bike race, according to Trooper Heather Cobler.
U.S. 36 was closed briefly to allow a helicopter to land on the road, according to Boulder County dispatch.
