Cycling art, Tour de France, Watercolour painting Froomey dances to victory! by Maxine Dodd

Bonjour! Stage 10 on Bastille Day, was the first of three days in the Pyrenees, following a great course through the foothills, up into the mountains and finishing with a testing climb. The dazzling performance of the day came from Chris Froome, who broke away with 6km to go and left everyone behind, almost dancing on the bike up to the finish. This was an astounding performance, securing the King of the Mountains jersey as well as retaining Yellow. He won on Bastille day the year he won the Tour, perhaps too soon to assume that history will repeat itself, but we’ll see. This win was one to relish!
Here are my drawings:

    You sure got Froome’s arms right. That dude on a bike is the grossest thing I’ve seen in a while. Gnarly.

      Well, what can I say? The elbows have it! Glad you can recognise him. Gnarly is a great word to describe him 😀
