Tour Final Stage: On His Wheel

As Richie Porte (Team Sky) and the peloton swung up out of the tunnel under the Tuileries and around 'Norwegian Corner' they slide under the one kilometer to go banner (although at this point it is one kilometer to the bell lap) the peloton was just about to get onto the wheel of Porte.  Normally the Flame Rouge or Red Kite wouldn't be hanging until it was one kilometer left to race, but with the speed they were turning the laps, there simply wasn't enough time to hang the kite on the proper lap.  This is a small original watercolor and ink painting that is available through my artist website at  The painting along with all of my artwork of the 101st Tour de France will be included in my soon to be self published tome, "Book de Tour."  To learn more about the book project, to pre order your copy, or to discover how you can be a part of bringing this Tour to print, please visit  There are some fabulous rewards for those who choose to back the book, including artist signed copies, original art, printed postcards and even a few copies signed by Vincenzo Nibali himself.  Everyone who contributes will have their name in print on the Special Thanks page of the book.  To purchase this painting, just follow the direct link at the end of this post, but wouldn't you like to have all of the paintings in a book as well?  Sure you would!
