Dauphine, Stage 5: Their Turn to Chase

With the final climb up to Vaujany just ahead, FDJ was working to get their team leader, Thibaut Pinot, in the best position for the start of the ascent.  With the five riders still up the road, the first step was to pull them back into the peloton.  I had the pleasure of meeting Jeremy Roy (FDJ) when he was in Richmond, Virginia for the UCI World Road Racing Championships.  I was hoping to confirm that he was one of those on the front of the peloton,  Alas, I am just not certain he was one of these three in "Bleu, Blanche et Rouge."

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.
