Stage 8 | French Polka Dots | Original TDF Cycling Art
Cosnefroy the French KOM
While the hopes for a French Yellow Jersey winner slipped off the back of the peloton, at least AG2R La Mondiale is putting on a good show. With Benoit Cosnefroy in the KOM Jersey and Stage 8 winner Nans Peters riding high in the Pyrenees.
This work was created by drawing with pen and ink, then finishing with watercolors.

We love cyclocross — its up close and personal. It’s loud, hard and fast. Cyclocross is about power and smarts, but mostly it’s about pain and hard work. Frozen, wet, covered in mud and tired we ride on to finish. We ride on to win.
This is my interpretation of how every rider we pass or that passes us – sticks with us. As we revel in the glory and the mud, and as we push ourselves outside the comfort zone.
With snow-covered Alpine peaks and lush green valley floors, Switzerland sets a stunning backdrop for the Tour de Suisse pro cycling event. One can only wonder if cycling pristine roads between towering mountains can make you forget the pain your legs are in, even if only for a short while.
This art was originally created to help raise funds for Midwest Bike Share program, a not-for-profit organization bringing an inexpensive bike sharing program to the greater Milwaukee area.
The idea behind the image was inspired by the name, Bike Share. One of Michael’s very first concept sketches for this project turned out to be the winning design. A group of diverse bicycle riders all sharing one bike. Sometimes the most simple idea is the best one.
This bicycle art print is printed with a white border which sets it off for framing.
This year the 2016 Tour de France will start in the shadow of Mont Saint Michel as it travels around the country for the month of July. This dramatic backdrop has been host to other Tour race days and no doubt will offer us breathtaking vistas of the peloton racing away from this historic location.
My vintage flavored drawing of this poster uses the Red, White and Blue of the French flag along with the “Maillot Jaune” – Yellow Jersey. Complete with goggles, a spare tire and of course a handlebar mustache our cyclist represents the romantic era of the Tour de France classic days of cycling.
This cycling art print comes in three sizes on high quality watercolor paper and will be rolled and shipped to you ready for framing.
Every September UCI Pro Cyclists race around the beautiful country of Spain for three weeks. Inspired by the success of the Tour de France and Giro d’Italia, the Vuelta a España (Tour of Spain) is one of the most challenging stage races on the cycling calendar.
In this image we see the cyclist as matador playing the bull as the roses fall from the sky. The red cape of the matador matches the red jersey of the Vuelta leader.
Pearson Cycling is the oldest bicycle shop in the world. Established in 1860 by Thomas Pearson and is still in the capable hands of the Pearson family. The shop has two locations, the original cycle shop is in Sutton, with a newer shop in Sheen London.
My approach to this cycling art was a bit different than what I might usually do mostly because it gave me the opportunity to draw a Penny Farthing. I also created a “P” shape on the rider to make a nice connection back to the Pearson logo. But the color combinations was where I had the most fun and couldn’t land on just one set I liked best so I decided to finish all three making them available for you to select your favorite.
