And so to Paris-Roubaix.
Finally finished - here’s the full set of my Monuments posters.
Lurking in the Arenberg forest on the Roubaix print is the dog that took out Bernard Hinault in 1981 - his seventh crash of the day on the way to winning the race he hated most of all.
Beautiful giclée prints available now individually or as a specially-priced complete set in sizes A2, A3 and 8”x12” from my shop:
suits and bikes… doesn’t get any better then that!
Number two in a series of posters dedicated to capturing the essence of the five Monuments of professional cycling. The Monuments (Milan-San Remo, Paris-Roubaix, The Tour of Flanders, Liège-Bastogne-Liège and the Tour of Lombardy) are five of the oldest, longest and toughest one-day cycle races in the world. Each has its own unique character, landmarks and legends.
‘The climber’s classic’, Liège-Bastogne-Liège is also known as La Doyenne - The Oldest.
At its climax, the riders race up La Côte de la Roche aux Faucons, ‘the Rocks with Falcons’. Always decisive, it’s one of the pivotal moments of every race
