Don “Quixote” Contador!

TdF Windmills


The race to win the Tour de France has already begun and we’re still five months out. What teams will put the winning combination together? Which GC contender will rise to the occasion?

My newest painting is a view of what many may believe to be a fantasy – will Alberto Contador conquer the TdF this year? Will his faithful team show him the way to glory and will he have what it takes to make the impossible happen again? Or is he just tilting at windmills and chasing dreams that will never come true?



That’s what I love about the Tour de France, never count anyone out, especially the dreamers and believers!

Chase those dreams! Dare to be bigger than life and grab the yellow jersey of fame!

I for one am hoping for a big showdown between Contador, Froome and Quintana – I can dream too you know. And since I’ll be there in person, I’ll be sure to voice my opinion and support those dreams from the side of the road.

Cheers to all the dreamers in the world!
