Local artist Nikki Arcieri makes it two in row

SUMMIT COUNTY — Racers in the 2012 USA Pro Cycling Challenge will face a big climb to start the day when they leave Breckenridge for the start of Stage 5 this summer. They’ll climb to 11,542 feet at Hoosier Pass before accelerating down into South Park, and local artist Nikki Arcieri captured the feeling of the pass in her design for the official Breckenridge stage race poster.
Arcieri won the friendly design competition for the second year in a row, this year with bold colors depicting a cyclist against the backdrop of the alpine peaks surrounding Hoosier Pass.
The race rolls through Colorado Aug. 20-26 with the Stage 5 Start in Breckenridge, Colo. on Friday, Aug. 24, heading for a finish in Colorado Springs. (more…)
