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 Lotus track bike was era-defining, and remains lodged in the collective memory of all cycling fans that witnessed the 1992 Olympic Games in Barcelona. Piloted by Chris Boardman to Gold in the 4km Individual Pursuit, it remains, more than 25 years later, a pioneering design and indisputably one of the most beautiful designs in the history of cycling. Designed by Mike Burrows.
