Tour de France, Stage 16: Given a Head Start

Adam Hansen (Lotto Soudal) and then Marco Haller (Katusha) sporting his new Champion of Austria kit, managed to use their power to escape the rest of the climber oriented breakaway across the valley floor between the Col de Cabre and the Col de Manse.  The duo slid under the 20 kilometers to go banner at the base of the final climb of the day with fifty seconds over the chasing group containing Peter Sagan (Tinkoff Saxo) amid other strong climbers.  With only less than a minute, it was unlikely that the two could stay away against the mountain goats of the Tour, but they had to give it a go.

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.richesnonart.com.  They are a small family run art supply company located in the North Central United States.  In addition this painting, along with all of my cycling art, 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.  Remember it is an original painting, so when it is gone, it is gone.
