Tour de France, Stage 19: Riding All In

With Alberto Contador (Tinkoff Saxo) pulled back into the group containing all of the main contenders, it was Astana that went to the front to raise the pace up the Col du Chaussy.  Riding for their team leader (an Italian National Champion), Vincenzo Niblai, both Tanel Kangert and Michele Scarponi were working hard with their jersey flapping in the hot breeze.  Nibali, who had one the previous Tour de France, as been growing stronger and stronger as the Tour nears its final stages.  Too bad his form wasn't this strong when the Tour was in the Pyrennes.

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 business in the mid-west of the United States.  This painting is available, along with all of my cycling art, at my artist website, www.greigleach.com.  To purchase this particular painting for only $60 USD, just follow the direct link at the end of this post.  It is an original painting, so once it has sold, it is gone.  I would recommend not delaying.
