E3 Harelbeke: Leading Them Around

After a few minutes of silence for the victims of the terrorist bombings in Brussels, the race got underway.  Shortly thereafter, this group got off of the front and built up over five minutes on the peloton.  So as they wove through the sharp corners and narrow roads of Belgium, they were leading everyone around the race course.  Some of those in the break included, Bert De Backer (Giant-Alpecin), Wouter Wippert (Cannondale) and Reto Hollenstein (IAM Cycling), all eight were hoping they could surprise those behind, many of home have claim victory in this race in the past.

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 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.
