Omloop Het Nieuseblad: Hello, Guys

It was Hugo Hofstetter (Cofidis) who was the first to drop back from the early break.  He is looking back over his shoulder as the Lotto Soudal and Trek-Segafredo lead peloton comes up from behind.  At this point the riders had cover most of the short steep and oft cobbled climbs of the day and it was now time to get down to putting the favored riders into position.  The first step in that process would be to gather up all of the early break away.  They can now tick one off of that number.

This is a small original watercolor and ink painting that was created using Yarka St. Petersburg watercolors and Steve Quiller brushes from Jack Richeson and Company,  Plus this painting is avialable through my artist website at  Just follow the direct link at the end of this post to purchase your piece of this early spring semi-classic.  International shipping is available.

Then there is my new book of the 2015 Road World Championships entitled, Art of Cycling: Richmond 2015 UCI Road World Championships.  Available world wide and at
