Tour de France Stage 4: On to the Pave

Stage 4 continued the Spring Classics theme with the peloton cross seven sections of pave that are used in "The Hell of the North" otherwise known as Paris-Roubaix.  These four went off from the drop of the Depart flag building up an eight minute advantage over the nervous peloton.  Perrig Quemeneur (Europcar) managed to get into the second break away in three days (his team has been represented in all three).  Joining Quemeneur were Lieuwe Westra (Astana), Arnaud Gerard (Bretagne Seche) and Thomas De Gendt (Lotto Soudal).  By the time the foursome reached the first section of pave the peloton was only 70 seconds behind them.

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,  This painting, and all of my cycling art, is available through my artist website at  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 don't delay, when it is gone, it is gone.
