Dauphine, Stage 1: Calming It Down

With just over six kilometers left until the finish of the stage, the peloton kept ramping up the speed.  With the speed, turns and traffic furniture the race was getting progressively more dangerous.  It was one of the elder statesmen of the peloton, Haimar Zubeldia (Trek-Segafredo) went to the front of the charging group and called for them to calm it down.  Or perhaps it was his teammate, Fumiyuki Beppu, who was the target of his calming gesture.  Regardless of whom he was signaling, the peloton did get to the line with everyone staying upright.

This is a small original watercolor and ink painting that was created 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 www.greigleach.com.  While you are on the site, be sure to check out my other works of art and my two cycling books.  To purchase this particular painting, just follow the direct link at the end of this post.  Bear in mind that this is a one of a kind original and once it is gone, it is gone.
