Tour, Stage 15: "Did We Drop Them?"

As Dylan Van Baarle (Cannondale-Drapac) and Tom Dumoulin (Giant-Alpecin) worked together up an uncatagorized climb before the first scaling of the Grand Colombier, Dumoulin asked if they had dropped the others from the break. Dumoulin has already claimed to stages in this year's Tour de France, one a mountain stage in a hailstorm, the other an individual time trial.  The Belgium rider on Giant-Alpecin was hoping to use both skill sets to win a third stage.  After all, if Mark Cavendish (Dimension Data) could have four wins, why couldn't he have three?  Van Baarle just want to give something for his team to cheer about and to prove that the Dutch can go uphill too.

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.
