Tour de France Stage 10: At the Bottom

With the duo still almost three minutes ahead, the peloton was flying along as each team worked to put their man in the best possible position for the first Haute Catagorie climb of the Tour.  The big names of the race had all marked this climb up the Col de Soudet as were they wanted to take time out of the race leader, Chris Froome (Team Sky).  It was going to be a tall order to put time into the Kenyan born climber wearing the Maillot Jaune, but it had to be attempted.  As they hit the bottom of  the climb, Movistar, Cannondale Garmin and Tinkoff Saxo were the teams on the front putting in a hard pace to soften up their rivals.

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 with some fabulous supplies for artists and crafters alike.  In addition, this painting 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, this is an original painting, so there is only one like it.  When it is gone, it is gone.
