Paris Roubaix: Gaining Position

The roads of Paris Roubaix include 28 sections of cobblestones, but most are also very narrow, making it hard to move up towards the front of the peloton.  This makes gaining and holding your position very important.  Team Sky has shown itself to be very adapt at controlling things at the front of a race and at times were up to the task at hand.  Here it is Christian Knees, Simon Geraints and Sir Bradley Wiggins holding the position in the strong cross winds of northern France.  This is an original watercolor and ink postcard that could be yours by being the first to visit my artist website at www.greigleach.com or you could just follow the direct link at the end of this post.  These original works are only $50 USD including shipping.
