Tour de France, cycling, art, Maxine Dodd

Bonjour! Stage 13 began and ended in silence for the victims of the Nice attack. Race director, Christian Prudhomme announced, “We must continue and not to yield. The Tour will continue but it is a day of mourning”. The stage was an individual time-trial through the dramatic landscape of the Ardèche. The standout performance of the day from Dutch rider, Tom Dumoulin, arguably the world’s best time trialist – tipped for a gold medal at Rio. He is my featured rider for this stage and a well-deserved win.  Here are my drawings:

    I love Tom Dumoulin, he’s one of my favourite riders, I was so pleased that he won. I think he will be a big name in future tours. Great paintings!
