US Pro Challenge Stage 6: One Last Ramp

Jens Voigt (Trek Factory Racing) has been doing quite a number of things for the last time this season.  This race is no exception.  I am sure he was happy to be doing his very last individual time trial.  When I raced, I dreaded the time trial, and I wasn't very good at it either.  Voigt is not a time trial specialist, but as he showed in stage 4, he as the power to sustain an incredible amount of effort at maximum speed.  With this long drag up the pass outside of Vail, Colorado, it would require just that amount of effort to carry the day.  This is a small original watercolor and ink painting that was created using Yarka St. Petersburg watercolors and Steve Quiller brushes from Jack Richeson and Company, a family run artist supply company in Wisconsin, www.richesonart.com.  They are great people who sell some fabulous art materials.  This painting is available (as is all of my cycling art) through my artist website at www.greigleach.com.  To purchase this 4"x6" painting, just follow the direct link at the end of this post.  But don't delay, the art is sold on a first come first serve basis.
