Cycling art, Tour de France, Watercolour painting BMC, World Champs, by Maxine Dodd

Bonjour! A team time-trial provided the excitement on Stage 9, before the rest day and the first real mountain stages in the Pyrenees on Tuesday. Time trials show the technique of riding so well and it’s a delight to see a well-practiced team moving like a machine, absorbing the air to go faster. This course was unusually placed in the Tour and with a sharp kick-climb at the end, really tested each teams’ skills. There are several masters of this discipline, including the current world champions, BMC – who are a joy to watch. They took the win from Sky by one second. Phew! On to the mountains…
Here are my drawings:

        Well, yes… But I was referring to the painting. The painting turned out awesome.

        Oh thank you! Wonderful! I think the picture worked because of the strength of colour perhaps, but so glad you like it! 🙂
