Tour de France / 2004  Olde Glory

Stage 2 - Charleroi - Namur. A Belgian horseman greets the Tour de France.

It may be the Tour de France, but for the years 1999-2004, it was America's race, as Lance Armstrong and his US Postal team dominated.

This poster celebrates the USA with a remarkable moment that occured early in the 2004 Tour that began with a prologue and Stages 1-3 in Belgium. As the peloton rode through the countryside, a lone Belgian farmer hopped on his horse with a huge American flag, and galloped alongside the cyclists in support of the great Lance Armstrong in his quest for a sixth straight victory.

Using a unique computerized process, photographer Graham Watson and his publishing company turned this amazing photographic image into watercolor-style, making it look like a precious painting.

With sharp white-bordered design.

Note: This poster is now out-of-print; we now only have one available.
