Dauphine, Stage 4: Just Tooling Along

True to form the fourth stage of the Criterium du Dauphine featured and early break, and yet again Wanty-Groupe Gobert was represented.  This time it was the Belgium rider, Frederik Veuchelen.  The others that made up the trio were, Maxime Bouet (Etixx-Quickstep) and Bryan Nauleau (Direct Energie).  While the threesome were way to far down the general classification to effect the leader board, today's stage may be the final chance for the sprinters to show their stuff.  Therefore it is unlikely that they will be allow to stay away to the line.  I image that several of the fast men were still angry at themselves for letting Fabio Aru (Astana) pull off a solo dash to victory yesterday.

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.
