Dauphine, Stage 2: Let's Go Get 'Em

Looking back over his shoulder, Lilian Caleneiane (Direct Energie) seemed to call to Daniel Teklehaimanet (Dimension Data) and Jack Bauer (Cannondale), "Let's go get 'em!"  The threesome had just been dropped by their earlier compatriots on the climbe up the Cote de Saint Georges-en-Couzan.  Leaving them behind was Alexis Gougeard (Ag2r La Mondiale) and Bartosz Huzarski (Bora-Argon 18).  Teklehaimanet had ridden over the first to climbs claiming maximum points in the King of the Mountain competition, but losing the leaders on the third climb would mean the Eritrean wouldn't claim the Polka Dot Jersey at the end of the day.

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.
