Robert Millar illustrations

As the Tour de France hits the mountains, here is a cool illustration of Robert Millar, Britain’s and Scotland’s greatest ever tour climber. Rider even. It is the second part of Richard Mitchelson‘s ‘Tete de la Course’ series.

Illustrator Richard Mitchelson, aka Rich Mitch - Rapha, Rouleur

Robert is illustrated in Richard’s minimal style, with subtle details that make the image of Fausto Coppi, Tom Simpson and Bernard Hinault instantly recognisable.

Richard’s work has been used on a series of T-Shirts for Rouleur magazine, featuring cycling greats such as Eddy Merckx, Marco Pantani and Greg Lemond.

Richard has also featured in the magazine itself, with an extensive feature on the classic 1989 tour in edition 16. This issue also had articles on the Z Peugeot team that Robert rode for.
