Tom Simpson series

In commemoration of the 2014 Tour de France passing through Yorkshire, the Tom Simpson series features one of its local heroes. With rare access to original material related to Simpson (his World Champion Jersey from 1965; the '49' number plate from the bike he was riding on 13th July 1967; his Peugeot jersey; items from mechanic Harry Hall), this series of five original prints pays homage to one of the greats of British road cycling.
