Tour, Stage 12: Just These Two

Tired of chasing the attackers, once Chris Froome (Team Sky) had lost the last of his teammates, the leader of Sky and the race launched one of his own.  The duo of Froome and his former teammate, Richie Porte (BMC) road the rest of the contenders off of their wheels.  Nairo Quintana (Movistar) and the Maillot Blanc of Adam Yates (Orica-BikeExchange) tried and failed to go with the attack.  The fans behind these two are pointing at the one rider who was coming across the gap.  Unexpectedly, it was Bauke Mollema (Trek-Segafredo) who had the legs to give chase to the leader of the race and the leader of the team that is leading the race.  As the riders climbed ever closer to the end of the stage, the crowds grew in number and enthusiasm.

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.
