Tour, Stage 10: Covering the Rainbow

After a couple of attacks on the final climb of the day up the Cote de Saint Ferreol, all covered by Peter Sagan (Tinkoff), they all decided to cover his moves instead.  Sagan had already garnered enough points to take back the Green Jersey in the points competition, but no one suspected that he didn't want another stage win as well.  Orica-BikeExchange was playing a numbers game.  Luke Durbridge had driven the pace up to the final climb and then left it to Daryl Impey to launch repetitive attacks to weaken the legs of Sagan.  His teammate, Michael Matthews just kept everything in front of him waiting to launch the sprint with the freshest legs in the break.  Having launched an unsuccessful attack himself, Edvald Boasson Hagen (Dimension Data) kept an eye on the Orica duo and Sagan.

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.
