Paintings of The Tour of Britain cycle race. Welsh Artist Gwynfor Roberts

The 2011 Tour of Britain
Cycle Race.
Welsh Artist Gwynfor Roberts

These paintings show the cyclists passing through Tredomen in Ystrad Mynach. South Wales on the 14th September. Stage 4. Welshpool to Caerphilly.
It's just now and again I get the chance to capture an event like this so I've taken the opportunity to produce three watercolour paintings. The first is 2011/52, a snapshot of the three leading riders : Endura racing, AN Post Sean Kelly and Rapha-Condor-Sharp, followed by the motor cycle/cameraman as they came down Tredomen hill on their way to the finish at Caerphilly. They were caught by the peloton just after the Asda traffic lights.

The second is 2011/53 and shows the chasing peloton some 1 1/2 minutes behind
the three front cyclists. Leading the peloton are five team Sky riders.

The third is 2011/54 which shows the end of the peloton.
