Tour of California, Final Stage: Doctor's Visit

Dylan Groenewegen (LottoNL Jumbo) was caught up in one of those little tumbles that can happen at any moment, particularly when the peloton has been racing flat out for seven days.  After he had gotten a fresh bike and chased back up through the following caravan of team cars and race officials, he stopped in at the doctors office.  The race provides moving medical attention for those who are able to get back on their bikes and continue racing.  While it is the last stage of the race, no rider can start the next day if he doesn't finish the day before, in this case, no one wants to not finish the Tour of California when there is only twenty miles left to race.

This is a small original watercolor and ink painting that was painting using Yarka St. Petersburg watercolors and Steve Quiller brushes from Jack Richeson & Company (www.richesonart.com).  This painting along with all 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.  While you are at the website, be sure to check out my two cycling art books, "Book du Tour: Art of the 101st Tour de France" and, "Art of Cycling: Richmond 2015 UCI Road World Championships".
