Paris Nice Final Stage: Finishing in Polka Dots

Thomas De Gendt (Lotto Soudal) was one of the few riders who knew that the jersey he started the time trial with would still be his at the end of the day.  De Gendt had worked hard yesterday to make sure that he would go out as the King of the Mountains in the 72nd Race to the Sun, or as the reflective water on the road shows, the Race to the Rain.

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.
