Dauphine, Stage 2: A Clear Victory

Many had tried and failed to get away from the clutches of the peloton, including the eventual winners teammate, Ruben Fernandez (Movistar).  But the peloton just caught the remnants of the breakaway allowing Jesus Herrada (Movistar) to out sprint the tiring Tony Gallopin (Lotto Soudal) and Serge Pauwels (Dimension Data).  Yet again, the results of the stage did not change the over all standings that were established in the opening prologue.  Although the time gaps in the lower half of the top ten have shifted just a bit.

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  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.
