Women's Rond:e van Vlaanderen: Off on Their Own

Somehow the peloton let two very powerful women ride off the front on the final ascent of the day.  Emma Johansson (Wiggle High 5) hit the front knowing that she was dragging the World Champion Lizzie Armitstead (Boels Dolmans).  Before the race, Johansson stated in an interview that she was really hoping to add this race to her palmares.  It may not help that it was Armitstead who had gone on the move with her, then again they may be the two who could hold off the peloton.

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.  Plus this painting and all of my cycling art is available at my website, www.greigleach.com.  To purchase this particular painting, just follow the direct link at the end of this post.  Don't delay, as the painting is an original work of art, it is first come first served.

Be sure to check out my most recent book, Art of Cycling: Richmond 2015 UCI Road World Championships.  It is available internationally through most online bookstores, and at www.artofcycling.bike.  Or you could ask your local bookstore to get it for you.
