Paris Nice Final Stage: Driving All the Way

Simon Slipak (Katusha) drives hard on the pedals willing himself faster as he rounds the final corner of the climb and of Paris Nice.  Slipak's effort was enough to register the newest best time on the stage.  Unlike the best times before him, he only has a couple of guys following him up the hill.  Regardless of where he places on the stage, his ride has been enough to get him onto the podium at the final awards presentation at the end of the day.  Behind him one of the Gendarmerie directs his team car out of the finishing straight.

This is a small original watercolor and ink painting, along with all of my art of the 72nd Paris Nice, is available through my artist website at www.greigleach.com.  To purchase this particular painting, just follow the direct link at the end of this post.  If you are enjoying reading about bike races with the accompanying artwork please be sure to check out my recently published, Book de Tour - Art of the 101st Tour de France.  The book is available through virtually every online bookseller around the world.  Just google the title to find out where you can get your copy while avoiding international shipping charges.
