Breakaway About to be Caught in Nimes
Watercolor 13.5 x 21 matted 20 x 27. Tour de France 2019, Stage 16 110 miles Nimes to Nimes. - 5 cyclists broke away from the beginning until 3.5 miles to the finish: Paul Ourselin (Total Direct Energie), Stephane Rossetto (Cofidis), Lukasz Wishiowski (CCC), Alexis Gougeard (AG2R), and Lars Bau Ytting (Dimension Data). Rarely does the breakaway win the stage but on this day, it was very close and exciting.
I photographed this during "live" broadcast. I liked this photo because it was a good design and had an art element too. We were in Nimes in 2009 and so it made it even more special to capture the Tour and it brought back memories of this area in France.
