The May issue of VeloNews features an interview with David Clinger, once one of America’s greatest hopes for success in Europe, where he raced with Festina and with Lance Armstrong on U.S. Postal. In recent years, Clinger’s career has stalled as he has battled addiction. He is best known for his facial tattoos, which he is now in the process of having removed.

Photographer Dan Campbell and I visited Clinger at a Salt Lake City-area rehab center earlier this winter. For my article, you’ll have to pick up the magazine. But Campbell is graciously sharing some of his photos that did not appear in magazine.
