Tour de France Stage 4: Section After Section

As the peloton neared the end of the longest stage of the 102nd Tour de France, the sections of pave came fast and furious with this one being one of the longest of the seven.  Each team took there turn at trying to drive the pace, hopefully leaving their competitors, literally, in the dust.  At this point on Section 3, it was Thomas Leezer (LottoNL Jumbo) on the front dishing out the pain to those in his wake of dust.  It seems particularly cruel that the longest stage of the Tour was combined with the cobbles of Northern France.

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.  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.  Remember it is an original painting, so don't delay, when it is gone, it is gone.
