Cycling art, Tour de France, Watercolour painting A quick look back, Rodriguez and Froome by Maxine Dodd, RESERVED

Bonjour! Stage 3 headed towards France via Belgium, on a course that finished with a climb on the notorious Mur de Huy. All proceeded well, in bright sunshine, until an horrendous crash caused riders to pile into each other, landing round a streetlight. Many fell, including Yellow Jersey, Cancellara and four riders abandoned. The race was halted while medics worked on the injured. Eventually, the stage restarted with battered and bruised riders, including Cancellara, making their way to the finish.* The closing climb produced a nailbiting finish; the win for Rodriguez, but second place, Chris Froome, scored enough bonus points to secure the Yellow Jersey. A dramatic day. Here are my drawings:
