2014 UCI Worlds: Taking a Peek at 5 K

Michal Kwiatkowski (Poland) put in a vicious attack on the penultimate climb of the day, quickly dropping all of the top riders in the world.  Peeking behind as he passed under the 5 kilometer to go banner, I am sure he was both surprised and delighted to see no one in sight.  While he didn't have much of an advantage, the bend in the road blocked the chasers from view heartening the young man from Poland.  Kwiatkowski is having a hell of a year wearing the White Jersey in the 101st Tour de France on multiple stages and now here he is off the front of the peloton with just five kilometers to a Rainbow Jersey.  This is a small watercolor and ink painting that is available through my artist website at www.greigleach.com.  If you would like to purchase this particular painting, just follow the direct link at the end of this post.  You can see more art and read more about Kwiatkowski in my soon to be released, "Book de Tour."  It is available through my website as well, just look for the "Gallery" Book de Tour.
