It’s time once again to get ourselves psyched up for the blur of logo-splattered colorful skin-tight suits on wheels that is the USA Pro Cycling Challenge. To do so we bring you Westsider John Sondericker’s fantastic shots from last year’s race of the racers sitting still as the world races past them like inter-dimensional travelers from the future in alien clown suits.

Thanks John!
