Cycling art, Mallorca

Hello! Mallorca is a popular winter training ground for many top cycling teams, the terrain of the island providing a great mix of climbs and long flats – bathed in gentle sunshine. This winter has been extraordinary with the island (and most of southern Europe) subject to storms and snowfalls for the first time in many years. Glad to say that things settled a little on the first day of the Mallorca Challenge, with a lovely course for the sprinters. Stage 1 was won in style by Andre Greipel. I forgot to say, by the way, that Mallorca is one of my favourite places, so for me, to see a road race there is just about perfect! Here are my drawings:

      Wonderful to hear it! There’s more to come! I realised that I haven’t featured my favourite island very much, so time to redress the balance! Thanks again 👍
