Artist's description:

t’s a long old day ahead when you’ve got 221.5km to do and jut over 13 kilometres of that is pavé or cobbles plus a few category 4 and 3 climbs. However there is no room for the tentative here. It’s attack, attack, attack. Keeping yourself on the crown of the cobbles for one of the cleanest lines at the highest speed you can maintain. Using the hips to steer to keep the bike in flow as moving the front wheel into a dip or verge may just tip you off.

Ooh those cobbles, really take it out of the riders. Everyone wants to get the best line to stay upright and reduce the juddering through the wheels. Here Nibali (spot the pink boots) and Cav go elbow to elbow as they try to position themselves for points. Both stayed upright in the Tour de France 2014.

This painting is created using water-soluble oil paints on a shallow canvas which is 50 x 100 cm. Signed on the front bottom right in paint by the artist. It is professionally framed in a limed-white wood frame. This is shown in the picture of the two paintings (one of which is sold as marked).
