Paris Roubaix: This Is My Paris Roubaix

Sep Vanmarcke (LottoNL Jumbo) had to feel like he had this race in hand.  He rode everyone off of his wheel on the 5 star rated #4 pave section, Carrefour de l'Arbre.  As he looked back over his shoulder all he could see where crowds lining the cobbles, and the flags of Flanders and France. The Belgium rider had less than 17 kilometers left and was now beginning to dream of victory.

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  To purchase this particular painting, just follow the direct link at the end of this post.
