Tirreno-Adriatico Stage 4: An Absolute Flyer

Steve Cummings (Dimension Data) had been marking the attacks and hanging around with the escapees in support of his teammate, Edvald Boasson Hagen.  When the group Cummings was with got to far ahead of the peloton containing Boasson Hagen, Cummings was free to ride for himself.  And ride he did!  The Brit, after refusing to help those he had been with (at team orders), had the legs to ride everyone off of his wheel, taking an "absolute flyer" to the line for a solo victory in Foligno.

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 most of my cycling art, 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.  And yes, international shipping is available.

Plus, be sure to check out my newest book, "Art of Cycling: Richmond 2015 UCI Road World Championships" a complete telling of the 2015 Worlds through art and word painted live as the racing happened on the streets of my home town.
