Tour de France, art, Maxine Dodd

Bonjour! Stage 16 was a trip into Switzerland in honour of Fabian Cancellara for whom this will be his final Tour. The weather was fabulous and hot – perhaps a bit unbearable on a bike!  The stage was lead most of the way by Tony Martin and Julian Alaphilippe (Etixx-Quick Step) in a such a strong ride that they both won the ‘most aggressive rider’ award, appearing together on the podium in a unique ‘first’. They couldn’t sustain their amazing performance for the sprint at the end – the big sprinters taking over, Alexander Kristoff losing out by a whisker to the immense Peter Sagan. Here are my drawings:

    Hi Maxine, I’m just catching up after being away for a few days (blog(s) coming soon…) I love the picture of Sagan – very colourful and full of action.

      Sharon, thank you so much! It was really hard to do that one – the shadows were so complex! 🙂
