Tour Down Under: Getting Away

As soon as the peloton hit the end of the neutral start, Lars Boom (Astana) jumped out of the pack on a very long bid for victory.  He was quickly joined by Nelson Oliverira (Movistar) and Pim Ligthart (Lotto Soudal).  Once the trio had established a bit of a gap, several others tried to bridge across, thinking this might be the day that the break would succeed.  The only one to get onto the trios wheels was Reinhardt Janse Van Rensburg of the new pro tour team, Team Dimension Data.  This was a strong, experience break, perhaps they would be the ones to break the strangle hold of the peloton this year.

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.
