Tour Last Stage: Friends Along the Way

Blel Kadri (AG2R) took advantage of the extremely slow pace of the peloton to stop and visit with a friend waiting along the side of the road.  His buddy seem to reach out to embrace him, stunned at how thin he was, and then to revel in Kadri's survival to Paris and his victories along the way.  AG2R has had a stellar Tour de France, taking the overall team victory and placing Jean-Chirstophe Peraud onto the podium in third place.  Kadri brought them a stage victory and held the King of the Mountains Jersey for one stage as a result.  The young boy on his dad's shoulders will have a tale for years to come, regaling anyone who will listen about getting to meet Blel Kadri on the last day of the Tour de France.  This is a small original watercolor and ink painting that is available through my artist website at  This work and all of my paintings of the 2014 Tour de France will be included in my soon to be self published "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 the art of the Tour to print, pleas visit .  There are some great incentives to get you to back the book starting for as little as $5 USD, everyone who pledges their support will have their name included in print on the Special Thanks page of the book.  To purchase this particular painting, just follow the direct link at the end of this post.  But don't you want all of the paintings in a book form?  Of course you do!
