Eddie Merckx winning 1969 Tour de France

 

PANACHE

Riding with style

It’s not enough to win. Winning can be boring, routine. But to win with style, with daring, with panache - that is what elevates a rider to the greats. Three of the greatest rides of all, defying the weather, the climbs and the peloton. The race bent to the will.

We were thrilled when 2016 Paris Roubaix winner Matthew Hayman contacted us and told us he loved our Panache prints. He asked us if we would consider a private commission to commemorate his win as a gift to his team. We jumped at the chance. Neil wanted to capture the moment Matthew broke from the pack which was a defining moment in the race.  You can read the full story and view it here.
