Criterium International Stage 3: Riding for Ben

I was very excited to see Ben King (Cannondale Garmin) riding in the Maillot Jaune!  King is a hometown boy, he is from Richmond, Virginia, where I call home.  I never thought I would see a rider from Richmond wearing a Yellow Jersey in a professional bike race back when I was racing on the club level in the same city.  Cannondale Garmin put all of the team into pulling back the break away before the final climb up the Col d'Ospedale.

This is a small original watercolor and ink painting that 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, and yes, international shipping is available.  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.
