Cinti Artist/Cyclist Designs Poster for Colorado's USA Pro Cycling Challenge

Another Cincinnatian is going to the big pro show.  My BioWheels/Reece-Campbell Racing teamate James Biliter's poster was selected by the organizers of the USA Pro Cycling Challenge for Stage 5.  Not only is he a talented cyclist, he's also a gifted graphic designer.  The leg of the race from Breckenridge to Colorado Springs takes place August 24th.  I think a Breckenridge/Colorado Springs vacation is in the making to see the posters plastered in person, see the race, maybe meet a few of you that live in Colorado and of course shred some Springs singletrack.
James Always has an Eye for Art
In an article about the poster James says, “With family in Colorado, I am fortunate enough to visit every couple of years.  The poster was inspired by one of my first visits in 2002. We hiked in Garden of the Gods and I was awestruck by the magnificence of Pikes Peak in the distance.”
While he's not designing packaging for some of your favorite products at the agency he works at, James has also designed the posters and flyers for many Ohio Valley Races as well as the BioWheels and other local team kits.  For more on James and to see how his art and cycling worlds collide read his blog, Jimmy Road Rash.  Here's a link to his Colorado Springs trip blog post in particular.  Leave a comment and tell him congratulations!
