Women's Tour of California, Stage 3: The Counter Attack

The penultimate stage of the Women's Tour of California featured the peloton not letting any of the breaks succeed.  After each attempted was reeled back in by the attentive main body of the race another would jump free and gain a small gap before being reeled back in again.  This attempt was Valentina Scandolara (Cylance Pro Cycling), but she too, found the women in the peloton indisposed to letting her escape their clutches.

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".

Scandolara is one of the riders featured in my book on the Richmond 2015 races.
