Fifth in the Series. Winter cycling for me is all about slowing down and embracing the world around me. Much of which is covered in snow or frozen still. I ride in the open landscapes of the midwestern states north of Chicago on the Wisconsin line. Filled with farms at rest and wooded trails I’m grateful for the times I can get outside.
This series was created by dragging paint across the paper without a brush and then pen and ink details.

The Italian Grand Tour first organized in 1909 is the first grand tour of the UCI professional season in Europe. Made famous by the likes of Gino Bartali and Fausto Coppi where Italian riders dominated for the first forty years of the race.
The Italians love their annual race across the mountains and valleys of beautiful Italy. Cheering on the leaders and the man in the “Maglia Rosa” the Pink Jersey of the race leader.
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.
This Cyclocross World Championships poster celebrated the return of the UCI competition to the Netherlands in 2014. Hoogerheide hosted the best of the best in CX, thus a little nod to windmills, clogs and rainbow colored wheels.
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.
Since 1993 Dieter “Didi” Senft has been showing up to key stages of the Tour de France and pushing his champions onward. Dressed in his famous devil costume, Didi is known as “El Diablo.” Any fan of the tour has seen Didi in action and will again, and this bicycle print is an homage to his devilish antics on the sidelines.
