local racer on cover of ROAD Magazine

The cover of this month’s Road Magazine — the “Journal of road cycling and culture” — features local racer Mark Blackwelder.

The shot shows Mark competing at the recent Star Crossed cyclocross race up in Seattle.

Mark is a member of Team Veloshop, which is based out of Veloshop bike shop in downtown Portland.

Here’s another photo of Mark sporting his off-the-bike uniform at the Horning’s Hideout Cross Crusade race ;-).
