Cycling art, Tour de France, Watercolour painting Shall we have a breakaway of sprinters? C'mon! by Maxine Dodd

Bonjour! Stage 4 crossed from Belgium to France through wide fields on narrow, dusty lanes to town streets, but all featuring cobbles, seven gruelling sections in total. A much happier day for most than Stage 3, but for those nursing serious injuries, the cobbles must have been hellish. The top teams and positions stayed pretty much as before; Team Sky rode a great race and there was a lovely moment after the intermediate sprint where Peter Sagan, with a twirl of his finger, appeared to suggest a breakaway among the sprinters (they didn’t accept the invitation!) but the real delight of the day came for Tony Martin who won the stage and the Yellow Jersey – the first time in his career. Congratulations! Here are my drawings:

    Fantastic depictions of the race, I especially like the one which one rider is speaking to the other two riders next to him. Beautiful art.
