Omloop Het Nieuwsebald: Leaning In

The race saw the usual early break, one that build up a gab of almost six minutes before the peloton set off in pursuit.  As one would expect, the group of twelve was mainly comprised of the Continental squads mainly from Belgium,  Amongst those in the escapees where Maixme Farazijn (Topsport-Vlaanderen), Stef Van Zummerin (Veranda's Willens), Julien Morice (Direct Energie), Hugo Hofstetter (Cofidis).  The only member of a ProTour team was Alexis Gougeard (Ag2r La Mondiale).  As they swung through one sharp corner after another they knew that the peloton was growing ever closer.

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, www.richesonart.com.  Plus this painting is avialable through my artist website at www.greigleach.com.  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 www.artofcycling.bike.
