Tour, Stage 18: One Last Thing

Adam Yates (Orica-BikeExchange) has quite a bit riding on his shoulders in the final time trial of this Tour de France.  Of course one of those things on his shoulders is the White Jersey of Best Young Rider.  Yates is starting the time trial sitting third overall, but has a real chance of overtaking the man in second, Bauke Mollema (Trek-Segafredo).  Conversely, they are some very good veterans of the Tour just behind him, that are desperate to move up.  Yates is beginning to have a real chance to finish on the podium in Paris, but he needs to ride well today.  He is getting some last minute words of encouragement from his coach as he prepares to enter the start house in Sallanches.

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.
