Tour de France Stage 10: Not a Good Day

The defending champion of the 2014 Tour de France, Vincenzo Nibali (Astana) isn't having the same luck that charmed his previous ride around France.  Here is ever faithful lieutenant, Jakob Fulgsang is waving his team leader to push on behind himself and Tanel Kangert.  Also losing contact along with the Astana trio is the man who won on the top of the Mul du Hoy, Joaquim Rodriguez (Katusha).  The teams of Movistar and the Team Sky, had succeeded in putting many of the early race favorites on their back foot (or pedal in this case).  Unlike last year, when Nibali traded his newly one Tricolore Italian National Champion Jersey for yellow, it now appears he will be left to ride around France in his country's colors.

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.
