Tirreno-Adriatico Stage 6: Absolute Power

Peter Sagan (Tinkoff), the current World Champion, swung out of the slipstream of the former World Champion, Michal Kwiatkowski (Team Sky), and drove for the line.  Reacting just a pedal stroke or two slower is the man whose attack lead to his counterattack that won him the World title was Greg Van Avermaet (BMC);  The fourth man in the very select group was race leader, Zdenek Stybar (Etixx-Quickstep).  He was keeping a close eye on affairs knowing that with the cancellation of the mountainous Stage 5 due to snow mere seconds separated his lead from those of his break away companions.

This is a small original watercolor and ink painting that was created using Yarka St. Petersburg watecolors and Steve Quiller brushes both from www.richesonart.com.  In addition, this painting is available from my artist website at www.greigleach.com.  To purchase this original work of art, just follow the direct link at the end of this post.

Plus, please be sure to check out my newest book, Art of Cycling: Richmond 2015 UCI Road World Championships.  The book is complied from my live paintings of the 2015 Championships here in my hometown of Richmond, Virginia along with my blogposts serving as the rough draft for the text of the book.
