Tour of California, Stage 1: To Perfection

To quote Paul Sherwin, Peter Sagan (Tinkoff), timed it to perfection.  The World Champion managed to burst out of the back and chase down the sprinting Wouter Wippert (Cannondale) and Dylan Groenewegen (LottoNL Jumbo), to claim yet another victory while wearing the rainbow jersey that he won in my home town of Richmond, Virginia.  Sagan's win will have him trade in his stripes for the yellow jersey of race leader, a jersey that he took home as the over all victor a year ago.

This is a small original watercolor and ink painting (only 4"x6") that was created using Yarka St. Petersburg watercolors and Steve Quiller brushes from  The work, along with the rest of my cycling art and cycling art books, is available through my artist website at To purchase this particular painting just follow the direct link at the end of this post.
