Ronde van Vlaanderen: A Dangerous Move

As promised, it was the Paterberg where everyone made attempted to make their move, at least those who were still in contention.  After Greipel had been pulled back into the fold, it was yet another sprinter to spring a surprise.  First it was Niki Terpstra (Etixx-Quickstep), the winner of last year's Paris Roubaix, who got a jump on the dwindling peloton.  However, it was the sprinter from Katusha, Alexander Kristoff, who covered the Etixx-Quickstep rider's move.  The pair quickly distanced the others, looking to be the move of the day.  They certainly have the power and the pedigree to hold off any of the chasers behind.

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