Whether it is updates to the course route, the number of riders throughout the season, or the addition of a new phase of the Wheeler District, each Wheeler Criterium season is unique. Wheeler reaches out to a different local artist each year to design the Wheeler Criterium poster. With each new poster the Wheeler Crit is given a distinct brand to embrace for the season.
