Liege-Bastogne-Liege: Under the Flame Rouge

The Flame Rouge or the Red Kite, marks the final kilometer of the day's racing.  Liege-Bastogne-Liege featured about a kilometer of climbing before the kite and kept going up after the leaders passed under its welcoming sight.  Domenico Pozzovio (AG2R) and Giampaolo Caruso (Katusha), both climbers, got away on the final climb of the day and were doing well holding off the attacking peloton, although these two were within sight of the angry swarm of riders who each nursed hopes of claiming the victory at the line.  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 art of the 100th edition of this final of the Spring Classics.
