Tour Final Stage: Surprising Them All

The final man to have a go at going it alone was Simon Clarke (Orica GreenEdge).  He was a surprise and pulled of the move on the bell lap.  His attack send confusion through the ranks of the sprinter's teams and their lead out trains.  No one should have the power to ride away from the peloton when the lead out trains are at full gas just five kilometers from the line.  And yet, here is Clarke getting about ten seconds on them all as he starts back down the Champs Elysees.  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!
