The decisive breakaway move. This is a career-defining feat that every professional rider aspires to achieve. It takes bravery, timing, strength and, in some cases, a good old-fashioned dose of luck, to cross the line before being swallowed by the rapidly approaching peloton. Great riders including Fausto Coppi and Eddy Merckx have achieved epic and hard fought solo victories, but here's our somewhat easier route to achieving it!
This print would make a unique personalised gift for a cyclist or of course as a treat for yourself!
Taken from our original illustration, this personalised print depicts a rider in just such a move; observing his pursuers across the valley and hoping he has timed his efforts to win the stage before being caught.
The great thing about this print is that you can customise it by choosing from the following six options:
1. JERSEY COLOUR
Polkadot, Yellow, Green or White.
2. HAIR COLOUR
Blonde, Brown, Dark Brown, Black, Grey, Ginger or No Hair.
3. EYE COLOUR
Blue, Brown, Dark Brown, Black, Grey, Green or Hazel.
4. BIKE COLOUR
Red, Blue, Green, Yellow, Orange, Dark Blue, Black, White, Celeste or Grey.
5. RACE NUMBER
This could be a favourite rider’s number, a lucky number, birthday, anniversary etc.
You can choose whatever you like for the text. For example you could have: ‘Allez James - give it some stick!’ or something like: ‘Tom Smith - Breakaway King’, but the choice is entirely yours!
When you place your order, simply leave your six custom choices in the ‘Notes or instructions’ section at the bottom of the checkout page.
