Tour of California, Stage 7: Where Did They Go?

Peter Sagan (Tinkoff) clad in the Green Jersey of the Sprint Points Jersey (the race leader's jerseys taken precedence over the World Champion's Rainbow Jersey).  Sagan must have been feeling extremely strong.  He had gone in the early break to collect up all of the intermediate sprint points to insure his victory in the Sprint Competition.  Has he and the other five guys in the break were racing along the coast, he took his turn on the front and simply road away from the other five.  When he looked back over his shoulder and discovered he had a gap, he figured why not keep riding?  As he climbed the final categorized climb of the Tour of California, he could only find the race motos on his wheel.

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".
