Dauphine, Stage 4: Cornering for Home

With just meters left to race the entire peloton was elbowing their way through the final corner.  Once they straighten up from this hard lean, it was time to sprint in earnest.  Leading them through the corner was the strong man from BMC, Greg Van Avermaet,  Rubbing shoulders with the Belgium on the Swiss team was Daryl Impey (Orica-GreenEdge) and next to him, the Norwegian Champion, Edvald Boasson Hagen (Dimension Data).  Tucked in behind Van Avermaet was the fast man from Giant-Alpecin, John Degenkolb.  From here it looked like it was going to be the man from BMC at the line.

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.
