About

Vive Le Tour traces the history of the Tour de France, joining the dots from the Yorkshire Grand Depart back through 101 editions of the world’s greatest race to the pioneering early editions.

Specially commissioned for the cover of Soigneur magazine, the artwork features landmarks from the 2014 editions alongside some of the sights and legends that have made the Tour.   Details include the rainy Yorkshire Dales, the Caisse Desert atop the Col d’Izoard, the Arc du Triomphe, and a bear lurking among the mists of the Pyrénées to catch the fearful pioneers of the earliest editions of the race.

Along the route it commemorates the 100th anniversary of World War 1, watched over by pilot Marie Marvingt (the first in a long line of female riders to protest at the lack of a women’s Tour) as the road winds through the sunflowers and lavender fields of la belle France.

Printed in a numbered limited edition of 101 (one for each edition of the Tour)
