Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne: Hoping to Go Alone

With the break away sucked back into the fold by the leading group of chasers it was time to launch the counter attack.  It was Jasper Stuyven (Trek-Segafredo) that decided that he had the legs to go from almost 20 kilometers out.  Before he attacked, Pim Ligthart (Lotto Soudal) had been disrupting the flow of the group trying to slow it down enough so that his team leader could catch back onto the tail of the leading 15.  When Stuyven went, Ligthart happened to be on his wheel, given the Lotto Soudal rider's objective, he allowed the gap to open and none behind were ready to put in the chase. Nor willing to drag everyone else along to catch the fleeing man from Belgium.

This is a small original watercolor and ink painting that was created using Yarka St. Petersburg watercolors and Steve Quiller brushes from www.richesonart.com.  This painting and many, many other pieces of cycling art are 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.  And yes, international shipping is available.

Plus, I have just released my second book, this one entitled, Art of Cycling: Richmond 2015 UCI Road World Championships.  Obviously, it focus on the 2015 Championships that took place here in Richmond, Virginia this past September and includes my paintings and writings on all of the races contested on the very streets that I ride every week.

I am having trouble with loading my artwork on to my website.  Please email me at greigsart@gmail.com if you are interested in purchasing this work, or any of my other Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne paintings.
