Dauphine, Stage 3: Going Long

The former three time World Time Trial Champion, Tony Martin (Etixx-Quickstep), like the odds of riding alone for the final twenty kilometers of the race.  So on the final climb up the Cote de Secheras he jumped free from the peloton and went off in search of stage glory.  Plus with Martin up the road, Etixx-Quickstep and their leader, Julian Alaphilippe (wearing the White Jersey of best young rider) didn't have to contribute to the chase.

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.
