Stage 19 / “Alpe d’Huez” / 2011

One of our favorite posters because of the typographic coincidence.

Pierre Rolland won this stage which included the climb up the iconic Alpe d’Huez. Andy Schleck (the guy we were rooting for) got in the Yellow Jersey. I guess you can figure it out.

Rolland ended up having a good cycling race name, second only to Tony Gallopin.

21 switchbacks. Brutal.

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.

Several days of the tour there was serious rain. This was a beginning-to-end storm. All of the cameras were covered in water so it looked like you would looking through gauze. And one of the killer breakaway schemes ever.
