Each year, we look forward to choosing the newest, freshest, and fastest local cyclists to represent the Indy Criterium. And represent they do! Our cover models have swam the English Channel, are training for the Olympics, have competed across the globe everywhere from Taiwan, to Austrialia, and all across Europe.
We are often asked how our cover models are chosen. Well, we take into consideration four factors: character, passion for the sport, up and coming talent, and all around good representatives of our event. Who knows, you may be the next face of the Indy Crit!
We would also like to take this opportunity to thank our very talented photographer John Bragg who has donated his time and talents each year to our cover shot. Thank you for making us look beautiful!
