Tour of California, Final Stage: Not Done Yet

The Tour of California may be over, but Mark Cavendish (Dimension Data) isn't finished being a great sprinter.  Many have begun to write of the Manx Missile, but today he came around both Peter Sagan (Tinkoff) and Alexander Kristoff (Katusha) to affirm that he is still a very powerful sprinter.  A few riders back you can just see the raised arms of the winner of the overall classification of the Tour, Julian Alaphilippe (Etixx-Quickstep),  Chapeau!  And well done to all who raced over the last eight days.  It has been my pleasure to watch you race, and to paint your exploits.

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 (  This painting along with all of my cycling art, is available through my artist website at  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".
