Tour Down Under: Off on His Own

The Tour Down Under seems to be the race of the lone break away, so far two out of three stages have featured a solo effort.  Only the first stage had a three man break.  To go solo is a tall order, but Laurens De Vreese (Astana) had the faith that he could beat the odds.  With Vreese out front the rest of the Astana team was able to sit in in the peloton saving their energy for a possible ploy on the final climb of the day.

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.
