Stage 18 / “Straight up” / 2015

Col du Glandon is a climb where the riders are on 18 switchbacks that simply winds its way straight up the mountain.

On all of the other iconic climbs that I know of, the road will move far to the side, usually at the top, as it competes with the overall shape of the mountain. This one straight up just like our drawing.

This might be my favorite poster of them all. In doing this picking the best poster of the various stages it appears that we did some of our favorite posters in the final week of the tour.

Click here to read the whole story of the broadside below.

You should take a look at some of the production shots at the bottom. The image is made up of 1/4″ wide strips of Masonite. Ended up being a very cool way of drawing the image. Tiffany rolled the dark green. David rolled the middle green. Jill rolled the light green and sky, Killer broadside.

The tally for the TdLG years so far.

2011 - 48 points
2012 - 27
2013 - 32
2014 - 14
2015 - 26
