For our featured photos this week, Joe Sales, perhaps our most valued contributor, has a gallery of his photos from US Cyclocross Nationals that just went live. If you read Cyclocross Magazine or visit the website regularly, you’ve seen his photos, including on several covers of the magazine.

To see more of Joe’s amazing photography and catch up on interviews and race reports from Nationals, be sure to check out the photo spread and our Nationals coverage in Cyclocross Magazine Issue 12.

Sales is going to be a featured artist in a cyclocross photo show in Portland, Oregon, so stay tuned for more details.
