20-06-2023 On December 1-3, 2023 the UCI Cyclocross Masters Men’s and Woman’s races will be held in Hamburg, Germany. I was fortunate to be given the assignment to create the official image used in the marketing and merchandising of the event.

I submitted a range of concepts and after their review with the organizers, I was very excited to hear they were willing and enthusiastic about using a female image to represent the event, traditionally this is male territory. But they loved the strong, heroic and dramatic look I created using the UCI rainbow as the woman’s ponytail.

The silhouette of the freight ship is there to identify with the port of Hamburg, the host city. And the other cyclist gives us a little more cyclocross imagery for those who need it. After all it is about bike racing. I love how this Cycling Art Print turned out, I hope you do as well.

For more information about the event you can read my post here: 2023 MASTERS CX POST
