The Tour de France comes to London and the city’s transport network has issued these posters. The transport network has long used graphic design with its famous “tube map” and publicity posters that date back to Frank Pick.
Jean-François Pescheux is retiring from his job as ASO’s technical director. The man behind much of the Tour de France route as well as the saviour of Paris-Roubaix’s cobbles, he’s also been the chief official when the race is on.
Here’s hoping he gets a good send off at this week’s presentation of the 2014 Tour de France.
