Tour de France Stage 6: Just Ten More

Kenneth Van Bilsen (Cofidis) had let Daniel Teklehaimanet (MTN-Qhubeka) take the final King of the Mountain points on the road, thus putting the Eritrean into the Maillot Pois.  This is the first time that a black African (or an Eritrean) has ever pulled on a classification leader's jersey in any Grand Tour.  But once Teklehaimanet and Perrig Quemeneur (Europcar) had dropped their pace, Van Bilsen attacked them in an effort to go for a solo victory.  After all, nothing ventured, nothing gained.

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 family run art supply company located in the northern midwest United States.  You can find them on the web at  You can find this painting and many others at my artist website at and you can purchase this painting for only $60 USD while you are there.  To buy this particular painting, just follow the direct link at the end of this post.  International shipping is available.  Remember, this is an original work of art, so when it is gone, it is gone.  Don't delay, you don't want to miss your chance to have a unique treasure from the 102nd Tour de France.
