Paris Roubaix: Taking a Peek

The 114th edition of Paris Roubaix was decidedly not going to script.  Even after 100 kilometers into the race no one was able to gain even a minute or two on the following peloton.  At this point those attempting to escape the big names of the sport were, Nils Politt (Katusha), Robin Stenvit (Wanty-Groupe Gobert), Evaldas Siskevicius (Delko Marseille Provence), Gediminas Bagdonas (Ag2r La Mondiale), Benoit Jarrier (Fortuneo-Vital Concept) and Kenneth Van Bilsen (Cofidis).  Politt is taking the opportunity to peek back over his shoulder to see if he can espy those chasing from behind.

This is a small original watercolor and ink painting that was created using Yarka St. Petersburg watercolors and Steve Quiller brushes from Jack Richeson & Company.  In addition this painting, and all of my cycling artwork, 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.

Be sure to discover my most recent book, Art of Cycling: Richnond 2015 UCI Road World Chanpionships.  You can find the book at your favorite online retailer or at www.artofcycling.bike.
