Gent-Welvegem: Blown Off the Road

The conditions were hardly ideal to be out on a bike racing 239 kilometers on flat open roads in Belgium.  At one point, many members of the peloton argued that the race should be neutralized in consideration of the safety of the riders.  The winds were so strong that an errand cross wind gust blew Geraint Thomas (Team Sky) off of the road and into a ditch.  Fortunately for the talented Brit, he was able to roll with the fall in the grassy verge and jump back onto his bike.  He quickly rejoined the small break he had been in, apparently unscathed by his roll in the hay.

This is a small original watercolor and ink painting that is available through my artist website at www.greigleach.com.  To purchase this particular painting for only $50 USD, just follow the direct link at the end of this post.  And yes, international shipping is available.
