Pens replace pneux and pencils are your peloton as the doyen of British cycle illustrators, Richard Mitchelson, leads you on a magnificent ride through an entire season of grand-tour racing. Fun, dynamic, interactive, and entertaining, Richard Mitchelson's Grand Tour is infused with a 'broom-wagon' full of cycling style, culture, history and humour.

Prepare for the Giro d'Italia by personalizing your race-jersey and cap, or chose to create one of those sported by 'maglia rosa' legends down the years. Select your ride, study the route of the Gran Corsa or just design your own road to Milan. Get creative on the Passo dello Stelvio and 'copy Coppi' with an Il Campionissimo Dot to Dotti. Move on to the Grand Départ of the Tour de France, design your very own 'Grand Boucle' and fill in your race number on the board. Become inspired by colouring the cobblestones of the north's Arenburg forest, paint your name alongside the legends on the scorched Summer climb of the Col de Tourmalet, and quickly unleash some paints or pens to ensure the colours are in place at an old velodrome before the riders arrive. Party with the icons of the sport - Laurent, Bernard, Gino, Bradley, Fausto, Tom, Eddy, Richard, Marco, Sean, Jacques, Greg, Raymond, Miguel - before showing them your true colours as you progress to Spain's famed grand tour, the Veulta a España, the Alto de l'Anglirn and other terrifying Iberian climbs. The finishing line is wherever you want it to be.

Grand Tour is a joyful celebration and an inspired, magical journey through cycling's greatest races. For the ride you'll need some pens, pencils and a devastating amount of cycling 'panache'.
