The Hommage:

Hommage au Vélo artwork is inspired by the leading actors of the Grand Tours and Classics. We take the central characters of cycling history and interpret them and their machines. No bicycle gets painted that hasn’t played a defining role in the evolution of the racing bike; only iconic riders who have shaped the sport around them make the scene. Hommage au Vélo has created a new standard for cycling artwork. Ensure that the prints in your home embody your passion for the sport as much as the bicycle you ride. Do you have a Hommage?


Artistic Medium: Oil-on-Canvas


This Bianchi was the machine used by Marco Pantani to win the 1998 Tour de France. Arguably the most iconic bicycle of the "aluminium era", sandwiched between decades of steel frames and the future dominance of carbon fibre, it married Bianchi's famous "celeste" colour with the yellow of the Tour winner, perhaps by chance more than design. Adorned with Campagnolo components, it was a fitting tribute to the rider who piloted it so memorably to the Giro-Tour double in 1998. Painted in fine detail with exquisite brush strokes that highlight the beauty of this machine.
