Hitting The Wall Caravan 1 - Broom Wagon Print

In some ways the old Tour de France cars of the 1950s were endearingly less capable than the riders themselves, and the Hitting The Wall Caravan 1 - Broom Wagon limited edition A3 print pays homage to one of the iconic vehicles of the show. Call it the Broom Wagon, or call it the Voiture Balai, for the stoic grand tour rider, seeing it prowling behind, reeling them in, would have been heartbreaking.

Slipping back through the peloton, dropped and alone, lost in the suffocating fumes of the following cars, the effort, the toil, the struggle, the pride, all coming to an undignified and uncomfortable end in the back of a dogged little van. Cycling at its grittiest and most emotional, battles to stay clear from the broom wagon were no less courageous than the efforts of race winners. Glory is not reserved solely for those who cross the line first.
