Tour de France Stage 10: Headed for a Big Climb

Coming out of yesterday's Rest Day, the Tour organizers gave the riders a chance to get their legs back under them with a long relatively flat stage with a very big climb at the end.  This pair of Pierrick Fodrigo (Bretagne Seche) and Kenneth Van Bilsen (Cofidis) had built a lead of almost fifteen minutes on the peloton, but as the Col de Soudet neared, so did the chasing peloton.  Fodrigo's team director pulled up along side to let him know just how much of a gap they had, and what would be needed at the base to stay away to the top.

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.
