Criterium International Stage 3: Chatting

I was unable to access the first two stages of the Criterium International, both of which were held on Saturday, March 28th.  Ben King (Cannondale Garmin) won the first stage and road well enough in the second stage time trial to start stage 3 in the Maillot Jaune of race leader.  There, now you are caught up.  As per usual, a small break away got off the front of the peloton.  Marco Canola (UnitedHealthcare) seemed relaxed as he chatted away with the American, Chad Alpecin (Giant Alpecin).  Tucked in behind the pair is Christian Mager (Cult Energy), ahead are two more riders, Romain Feillu (Bretagne Seche) and Romain Guillemois (Europcar).

This is a small original watercolor and ink painting that was created using Yarka St. Petersburg watercolors and Steven Quiller brushes from Jack Richeson & Company, www.richesonart.com.  The painting is available through my artist website at www.greigleach.com.  To purchase this painting, for only $50 USD, just follow the direct link at the end of this post.  Enjoying reading about professional cycling with this accompanying art?  Then be sure to check out my recently publish book on the 2014 Tour de France, just google the title, "Book de Tour - Art of the 101st Tour de France" to discover where you can order a copy from your local online book seller.
