Pro Cycling Challenge 2013 Breckenridge stage poster unveiled

The Breckenridge Local Organizing Committee (LOC) for the USA Pro Cycling Challenge has unveiled the artwork, designed by James Billiter, to be featured on the 2013 Breckenridge stage poster. The artwork features racers from previous years set against a backdrop of Breckenridge’s signature Victorian buildings and surrounding peaks.

“I wanted to reenact the excitement of past USA Pro Cycling stages,” said Billiter in a recent press release. Billiter is a Cincinnati-based artist who has family ties to Breckenridge and a history of volunteering at the event. “We can’t wait to visit Breckenridge this summer to see the USA Pro Challenge again.”

In a statement, Biliter said he has been practicing art and design for 15 years. He was inspired by the popularity of concert “gig posters.” He wanted to bring that influence to cycling.

Biliter said that riding a bike has changed his life. Once overweight, he credits mountain-bike racing and cyclocross for his weight loss. He says his passion for the sport is reflected in his art.

The poster, which will be featured throughout town, was selected from several submissions by a panel of local guest judges including: Dan Gibbs, Summit County commissioner and former Colorado senator; Jenn Cram, Breckenridge Arts District administrator; Jesse Csincsak, winner of Bachelorette Season Four; Shannon Galpin, founder of Mountain2Mountain and 2013 National Geographic Adventurer of the Year; and Town of Breckenridge Mayor John Warner.

The 2013 USA Pro Cycling Challenge rolls through Colorado Aug. 19-25 with a finish and start in downtown Breckenridge on Aug. 20 and 21.
