Tour, Stage 15: Where Are the Chasers?

Rafal Majka (Tinkoff) peered back over his shoulder, just as he had at the start of the first climb, looking to see who was coming up behind.  Majka must have known that the duo of Alexis Vuillermoz (Ag2r La Mondiale) and Sebastien Reichenbach (FDJ) were chasing hard behind.  He would surely feel more comfortable going to the line in Culoz with just Jarlinson Pantano (IAM Cycling) rather than making it a foursome.  At least if these two stayed away from the chasers were guaranteed a place on the podium.  Majka already would be on the podium to receive both the Maillot a Pois and the red bib number of the most aggressive rider of the stage.  Now if he could just add stage winner to the day's tally.

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.
