La Course: I Can't Believe It


As Chloe Hosking (Wiggle High 5) crossed the line, she held her hands to her face in disbelieve.  She had chased down the fleeing Eleonora Van Dijk (Boels Dolmans) with less than a kilometer to go.  She starter her sprint just after rounding the last corner around the Place de la Concorde, under the shadow of Joan d'Arc.  She was able to hold off the fast closing Marianne Vos (Rabo Liv) who is the defending champion from last year's rather rain soaked event.  She did well to survive the late crashes that took out some of the bigger names in the sport, and held others or their lead out trains behind.  Coming in second was Lotto Lepisto (Cervelo Bigla).  Others in this painting include Roxane Fournier (Poitou-Charentes Futuroscope 86) and Joanne Kiesanowski (Tibco Silicon Valley).

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.

Be sure to check out my second cycling art book, Art of Cycling: Richmond 2015 UCI Road World Championships, available online or through your local book seller.
