Women's Tour of California, Final Stage: Leading Them Around

With the peloton all back together, yet again, it was time for the sprinters to wind up for the final assault.  Leading the entire group through the turn after the finishing straight was the Blue Jersey of Most Courageous Rider - Sarah Storey (Podium Ambition).  I believe she had claimed the jersey after her courageous ride in Stage 1. Riders from Twenty 16 and Hitec Products follow her high speed cornering in hopes that they would get the jump for their sprinters.

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".
