Vintage cycling artwork

Does anyone recognise this painting? Found it on someone's blog but they don't know it's origin. Used reverse image find with no luck. Would love to get it as a print.

I knew it was familiar. Though, I think the painting comes second when you compare it to the original photo with the soaring mountains in the background.
