Tour 2012: Tempo With Yellow

This is what is fast becoming a common sight in the professional peloton, Team Sky riding tempo on the front of the peloton with one of the team wearing the yellow jersey (or whatever color is the leader's for that particular stage race).  This is Bradley Wiggins being paced by Team Sky, with Froome just in front of him, immediately behind his Thomas Voeckler in the polka dot jersey, then Vincenzo Nibali (the winner of the 2013 Giro) followed closely by Team BMC, including Cadel Evans.  With Wiggins out of the coming Tour, Nibali, Voeckler, Froome and Evans figure to be players in the 100th running of the Tour de France.  This is an original watercolor and ink postcard that can be yours by visiting my artist website, www.greigleach.com .  You can follow the direct link at the end of this post to this particular painting.
