Tour de France, Stage 20: Colombian Teammates

The acceleration that spoiled Vincenzo Nibali's (Astana) rejoining of the peloton was created by the attack on the man in second place overall, Nairo Quintana (Movistar).  Quintana was lead through one of the 21 switchbacks up the Alpe d'Huez by his countryman and teammate, Winner Anacona.
This corner is referred to as "The Irish Corner"  and it was populated by screaming Irishmen (and women) who cheered the Colombian duo with gusto, flag waving and drunkenly slurred words.

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 wonderful small family run art supply company based in the northern mid-west of the United States.  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.  As it is a one of a kind original work of art, you may not want to delay your purchase, because when it is gone, it is gone.
