Frits Pirard is maybe the most successful cyclist from Breda. He raced with the well-known cyclists such as Joop Zoetemelk, Jan Raas and Gerrie Kneteman. Pirard is the only cyclist of Breda that has worn the yellow jumper after his victory in the first stage of the Tour de France in 1983.
Sign painter P. Winkel (NL) painted the showcase by the bicycle shed as a tribute to the impressive career of Pirard. The painting contains many references to his cycling career. The years refer to the duration of his professional career, the logos to the teams and sponsors and of course a portret of Pirard next to the flag of Brabant.
The work of P. Winkel focuses on detailled, craft work and sometimes a small part role the computer.
