Liege-Bastogne-Liege: Timed Perfectly

Simon Gerrans (Orica GreenEdge) and Australian National Champion, had the legs and the good fortune to be the one to raise his arms in a victorious celebration as victor of the 100th edition of Liege-Bastogne-Liege!  Although you can't see him from this angle, Michal Kwiatkowski (OPQS) claimed third and Alejandro Valverde (Movistar) added a second place to his dramatic victory four days earlier at Fleche-Wallone.  Alas, Dan Martin (Garmin Sharp), winner of the 99th running, while chasing down Caruso, had his rear wheel slide out from under him on the final corner within site of the finishing straight.  Most likely, he would have added his second victory of this race in a row.  I guess the luck of the Irish did not favor Dan today.  This is an original watercolor and ink postcard that can be yours by visiting my artist website at www.greigleach.com.  While you are there, why not browse around at all of the cycling art and other paintings on offer?  For this particular painting, just follow the direct link at the end of this post.
