Tour de France Stage 5: Off On His Own

The breakaway of the day is usually a small group, the 102nd Tour seems to prefer breaks of four riders, but today it was just Pierre-Luc Perichon (Bretagne-Seche) who left the peloton behind.  It was a tall order for a single rider to hold of the might of the rest of those remaining in the Tour de France of almost 190 kilometers.  I am sure that Perichon would have preferred company to share the work load and relieve some of the potential boredom, however after putting in the massive effort to get away from the others there is nothing left for it put to press on whether anyone joins the effort or not.

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.  They are a small family run art supply company located in north central United States with incredible high quality supplies for artists and crafters alike.  You can learn more at their website,  This work, and all of my cycling artwork, is available for purchase through my artist website at  To buy this particular painting for only $60 USD, just follow the direct link at the end of this post.  Remember, this is a one of a kind original, so don't delay, once this painting is gone, it is gone!
