Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne: Taking It Alone

Surprising perhaps even himself, Jasper Stuyven (Trek-Segafredo) was able to hold off the scrambling chase group and grab a rare solo victory in Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne.  This race with its relatively smooth flat 50 kilometers is normally a race for the sprinters and is noted for its group sprints.  Today, however, it was proven that nothing in cycling is a given, and if you have the will and the legs, you can take the race in hand on your own.  It doesn't hurt if the group chasing is also hoping to get those further behind back into the race.

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.
