Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Posted By on Mon, Sep 10, 2012 at 4:14 PM

Bart Bowen takes third.After the dust settled on Saturday and Sunday, the final two days of the USA Cycling Masters Road  National Championships, it was clear that Bend racers know how to race crits.

On Saturday, Bend cycling coach and ex-pro Bart Bowen (pictured at right in purple) sprinted out of large field to finish third in the highly competitive  masters 45-49 age group.

And in the women's 40-44 age group, Brenna Lopez-Otero backed up her 2011 win with another victory in Saturday's national title crit race.

On Sunday Bend racers continued to shine as Helen Grogan managed a second-place finish in the women's 50-54 age group. Congrats to all the masters competitors—it takes a focused athlete to juggle training and racing with a family and a day job.
