Tour de France Stage 10: The First to Launch

Everyone expected riders to attack, it was just a question of who would go first.  By this point, Kenneth Van Bilsen (Cofidis) was already back in the peloton and his breakaway companion, Pierrick Fodrigo (Bretagne Seche) wasn't far away.  Surprisingly, it was Robert Gesnick (LottoNL Jumbo) who was the first to jump off of the front of the now Movistar lead peloton.  He was only chased by the half crazed fans that line the entire 15 kilometers of the climb to the finishing line at La Pierre Saint Martin.

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.
