Tour de France 2017: Elbow – Sold

Hello! There was one talking point from Stage 4. The end of the stage and the end of the race both for Mark Cavendish and Peter Sagan. I suspect the debate on the crash will last for a long time. Whatever your opinion, perhaps cycling fans can agree on one thing – that the race has lost two of its best and most exciting riders – and will be much the poorer for it. There are many photographs and videos of the incident, here’s my painting.

  1. Yes, it was a big talking point. They should make the riders keep to their line (disqualifying them or giving them a penalty if they don’t) and that might help to stop this sort of crash. I think it was inevitable once both Sagan and Cavendish had tried to go on the right hand side and then ran out of room – something had to give.
