Liege-Bastogne-Liege: Slipping Away

Garmin Sharp came to Liege-Bastogne-Liege with a strong team and the winner from 2013, Dan Martin.  That left them with a lot of different cards to play, and they seemed ready to play everyone.  Once the peloton was within a minute of the remnants of the early break, the American, Alex Howes, was able to get a respectable gap from the peloton.  They may have been to busy marking each other to take any notice of Howes, although it wasn't long before a few other opportunist jumped from the pack to give him some company and some help.  This is an original watercolor and ink postcard that could be yours by visiting my artist website at www.greigleach.com.  Or you could just follow the direct link at the end of this post to get your piece of the 100th Liege-Bastogne-Liege.
