Ronde van Vlaanderen: Pushing On

Realizing their mistake in letting Alexander Kristoff (Katusha) and Niki Terpstra (Etixx-Quickstep) go, Greg Van Avermaet (BMC) jumped on the pedals on the Paterberg in hopes of chasing the pair down.  Ever vigilante for his team, Zdenek Stybar (Etixx-Quickstep) marked the BMC leader's move, with Geraint Thomas (Sky) and Filippo Pozatto (Lampre Merida) jumping in behind Stybar.  The Swiss flag (and many "We love you, Fabian" signs) were waved even though the three time Swiss winner of the race had crashed out of another race just two weeks earlier.  While their man wasn't there, their spirits (or consumption thereof) was hardly dampened.

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.

If you are enjoying discovering bike racing through my writings and paintings be sure to search out my recently published, "Book de Tour - Art of the 101st Tour de France"   Just google the title to find it through your local online bookseller.  It is available world wide so you should be able to avoid international shipping.
