Dauphine, Stage 6: A Very Elite Group

Giving chase to the only two that were still up the road gaining time was a very elite group, a veritable whose who in the 2016 ProTour.  While the threesome on Team Sky was on the front, followed by the duo from BMC were Alperto Contador (Tinkoff) the rest of this prestigious group included Dan Martin & Julian Alaphilippe (Etixx-Quickstep), Diego Rosa (Astana), Daniel Navarro (Cofidis) and Pierre Rolland (Cannondale).  Ironically, both Navarro and Rolland lost the wheels of the group as soon as I completed this painting.  Apparently, Team Sky was upping the ante to be in this elite group.

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.
