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. For more on Stage 4… See Velovoices article Copyright Maxine Dodd

Tour de France 2017: Magic men!
