Romain Bourdieux and Thomas Pomarelle of Cyclemon have created a series of posters in an homage to the race, and bike riding in general.

In celebration of their country's legacy, French illustrators and designers Romain Bourdieux and Thomas Pomarelle of Cyclemon have created a series of posters in an homage to the race, and bike riding in general.
