Climbing, time-trialling and endurance are crucial tools in any professional cyclist's armoury, but even with these skills in hand, they can all amount to nothing if they haven't mastered the art of descending.
Descending requires the perfect combination of technical skill and fearlessness; attempting a descent without one or more of these attributes can cost you a lot of time or a lot worse. However, in the hands of the sport's best exponents; including Sean Yates, Peter Sagan, Vincenzo Nibali and Chris Froome, it can be a brilliantly effective weapon for stealing race-winning time gaps or clawing back your losses.
Taken from our original illustrations, this giclee art print depicts a group of descending riders 'LES DESCENDEURS' negotiating a series of hairpin bends with steep gradients and precarious drop-offs, as they hurtle toward the stage finish.
Available in two colourways: Green or Grey/Mustard
which you can select from the drop down menu.
The print measures 30 x 40cm (12 x 16 inches approx) fits a standard sized frame and looks good mounted too!
It is printed with pigment inks onto archival acid free paper, creating a beautiful high quality art print.
If you would like a larger size we have an A2 print (42 x 59.4cm/16.5 x 23.4 inches approx) available in both colourways from our shop.
Your print will be hand-finished, carefully wrapped in acid-free tissue paper and packed in a sturdy cardboard tube to ensure that it reaches you in tip top condition.
N.B. All Prints are sold unframed and unmounted.
