If you ever come by Tenspeed Hero HQ in Chicago there is a good chance you will meet Samuel Copeland. If you ask Luke, Jonathan, Aleia and Alexa, he is the rock that we all rely on. He is a spot on graphic designer and photographer. His qualities include his laughter, his quiet, his advice, and his timely dispensing of Kentucky Bourbon. Since he is about to embark on a little mission to Europe (his first trip!) to capture a cyclocross race or two for TSH we asked him to edit a selection of his photographs from last year’s World Championships in Louisville. Consider it a preview of what is to come.
