Tour Down Under: Churning Along

The teams holding first and second place took the responsibility of setting the tempo and riding to chase down the sole break away rider up the road.  Manuele Boaro (Tinkoff) let the peloton bedecked in the polka dot jersey of the King of the Mountains.  He was joined by a teammate and then the lion share of Lampre-Merida, the former riding for Jay McCarthy and the latter for Diego Ulissi.  I apologize that I didn't managed to get this group of paintings as well as I should have.

This is a small original watercolor and ink painting created using watercolors from www.richesonart.com and is available through my artist website at www.greigleach.com.  To purchase this particular painting, just follow the direct link at the end of this post.  In addition, be sure to check out my new book, "Art of Cycling: Richmond 2015 UCI Road World Championships" available now at www.artofcycling.bike.
