Tour, Stage 16: No Stopping to Eat

I know that this is not the first time I have painted the peloton passing through the feed zone so I won't bother with the caloric needs of the racers nor the contents of the musettes.  Some riders will wait till the end of the designated area, others at the beginning.  For now the lushly bearded Geoffrey Soupe (Cofidis) will keep riding, while riders for Tinkoff and BMC reach out for their lunch.  As you can see, the soigneurs will stand along the right hand side of the road holding the musettes aloft.  As their riders spot them, they reach out and grab the straps as they pedal pass.  From what I could see, lunch time was incident free today.

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.
