Victory in Alkmaar, Champion Europe (Amy Pieters)

This female cyclist is painted in the colors of the European champion jersey. I love that beautiful cycling jersey. I have been inspired by the victory of the dutch rider Amy Pieters during the European road cycling championship in Alkmaar 2019. 2019 was a great year for Amy. She became dutch and worldchampion trackcycling madison, european road cycling champion, european and world champion mixed relay,

This personalised cyclingartwork is made of used bikeparts. The head (helmet & ponytail) is made of an old sturmey archer shifter. You can recognise my female riders at the ponytail. This version of “the Cyclist” i painted the tubes with the colors of the rainbowjersey. It’s looks colorful. The colorful tubes refers to Amy Pieters being a world champion in trackcycling and the mixed relay. For the handlebar tape i used the color white because Amy mostly uses that color. At her special request i painted the metal base of this artwork as the wooden cyclingtrack with red and black band of a velodrome.
