Tour de France 2015: Stage 15 – Mende to Valence

Bonjour! Stage 15 pressed on through the stunning scenery beside the rivers Ardèche and Rhone towards the Alps. The conditions were hot with the Tramontane wind’s influence. In spite of the hills and climbs, there was a chance for the sprinters on the flat at the finish – really the last before Paris, so there was much to chase for the key riders. Team Katusha looked strong in the earlier part of the stage, Team Sky continued to hold their position, but the excitement came at the close, where four sprinters charged for the line. Another great performance from Andre Greipel who took the win, although the Green Jersey remained with Peter Sagan. Here are my drawings:

  1. Amazing paintings here, never seen the Tour de France captured in art form before (apart from photography). They really catches the colour and festivity of the event and the blur of the cyclists flying by (I have never been but I imagine once you have waited all day for the cyclists to pass by when they do they’re gone again with the wind!).
