Ronde van Vlaanderen: Up We Go

To paraphrase Phil Ligget, Ronde van Vlaanderen is a race with quite a sting in the tail.  Virtually all of the climbing occurs in the final 70 kilometers of the long, frequently cobbled race of 264 kilometers.  As per usual, an early break went off, but soon fell apart when these two, Lars Bak (Lotto Soudal) and Damien Gaudin (AG2R) road off the front and up the Kalanrieberg.

This is a small original watercolor and ink painting that was created using Yarka St. Petersburg watercolors and Steve Quiller brushes from the family run art supply company, www.richesonart.com.  In addition, this painting 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.
