Dauphine, Stage 2: Over Alone

Alexis Gougeard (Ag2r La Mondiale) pressed on with his escape from the rest of the break away, leaving Bartosz Huzarski behind as well.  The Frenchman was the first to reach the penultimate summit alone.  He was greeted by fans and a large French flag draped over the hedge on the side of the road.  Too far down in the King of the Mountains competition, Gougeard was more interested in the final summit and victory on 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.
