Fineliner and aquarel, 2010.
Tyler Farrar, rider for team Garmin-Transitions, moments after his crash in the second stage of the Tour 2010.
I wanted to depict another side of cycling for a change. What I love about this sport is the dedication of the riders. They want to finish the Tour at all costs.
Tyler Farrar suffered a fractured wrist and sprained elbow but got back on his bike to finish the stage with one hand. The next day, he got on his bike and became 2nd and 3rd in two sprints later. Eventually he had to abandon in the 12th stage.
Better luck next year Tyler, I'll be rooting for you!
