Tour de France, Stage 18: Taking the Day Off

Peter Sagan (Tinkoff Saxo) has been in virtually every single break away in this year's Tour.  Mainly to amass as many sprint points in search of the Maillot Vert.  He now has over a 100 point lead in the competition, so with none of his rivals ahead of him, he decided he could afford to take the day off.  Well as much of a day off as one can when the stage has a total of seven categorized climbs and covers over 186 kilometers.  As the Tour nears its conclusion in just three more stages, it looks as though all but the Maillot a Pois has been decided.  But anyone can have a bad day in a Grand Tour.

This is a small original watercolor and ink painting that was created using Yarka St. Petersburg watercolors and Steve Quiller brushes from Jack Richeson & Co., www.richesonart.com.  They are a small US based family run art supply company that has really wonderful products for art making.  This painting, and 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.  Be aware that because it is an original one of a kind work, once it has sold it is gone. So, don't delay.
