Tour de France, Something Is Wrong

When the man sitting third overall in the Tour de France drops off the back of the peloton on the first climb of the day you know something must be wrong.  Tejay van Garderen (BMC) was shepherded by his teammate Damiano Caruso.  Van Garderen's team director pulled up along beside the duo trying to figure out just what the problem could be.  With four climbs and over a hundred kilometers to go until the end of the day, losing two minutes at this point doesn't bode well for the GC aspirations of the American.

This is a small original watercolor and ink painting that was created using Yarka St. Petersburg watercolors and Steve Quiller brushes from Jack Richeson & Company, www.richesonart.com.  They are a small family run art supply company that really does have excellent art making materials.  This painting, and in fact all of my cycling artwork, is available through my artist website at www.greigleach.com.  To purchase this particular painting for only $60 USD, just follow the direct link at the end of this post.  Don't delay however, since it is an original painting, when it is gone, it is gone.
