Tour, Stage 17: Taking Them Over the Top
Leading the group Maillot Jaune was the former Italian National Champion (and winner of this year's Giro d'Italia), Vincenzo Nibali (Astana). He was pushing the pace along with Diego Rosa, in hopes of putting Team Sky and Chris Froome in jeopardy. Struggling along behind were all of the contenders with the notable exception of the American, Tejay van Garderen. Van Garderen was to summit this climb another thirty seconds after this group. I have no idea how long it took for the l'Autobus of the sprinters to make it to this point on the road. I'm sure Letour.com can give you that information.
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.
