Hola! Stage 14 of La Vuelta arrived in Andorra to climb the Pyrenees. What a contrast to yesterday? The riders hit the mountains, the rain and the cold in one almighty blast. They battled slippery roads uphill but even more dangerously, the descents – whilst being desperate for warmth. Several riders retired with hypothermia, whilst others clung on to the wheels of their team-mates to get through this massive shock to the system.
Daniele Ratto managed supremely on this arduous stage to take a much deserved win. Here are my drawings:

Keeping close together
Battling through the rain
Daniele Ratto leads all the way!
Rain, mist and cold!
I’m a mixed media visual artist working in Leicestershire in the UK. I trained in Fine Art using different media including oils and acrylics, but my recent work reflects my love of drawn media, especially pen, ink, watercolour and pastels. My theme is movement – My subjects are varied from landscape, animals, musicians, dancers and sport, especially cycling. The unifying feature of all these subjects is that they are constantly changing – there is movement and energy everywhere.
