Rochester Omnium was a bicycle race that began as the Rochester Twilight Criterium in 2004. The promoter, Scott Page, also owner of Full Moon Vista, oversaw the race grow from a local event to the New York State criterium championships, to part of USA Cycling's National Racing Calendar (NRC). In addition to drawing an international field of competitors that included world champions and olympians, the race drew more than 30,000 spectators.
In 2008 the race expanded into a three-day omnium, beginning with an individual time trial, followed the next day by the twilight criterium, and concluding with a road race.
The race was replaced by the Tour de New York in 2009 but later discontinued due to the lack of available funding and sponsors.
Finally, in 2015, the Rochester Twilight Criterium was brought back, and is now an annual Rochester event.
