Tour, Stage 18: Rough Day at the Office

Jermey Roy (FDJ) didn't quite make it through the last corners of today's stage.  As he hit the first part of the final S-curve his rear wheel kick out from under him.  Trying to compensate for that error he pulled his right foot out of the cleat but still couldn't get the bike to turn sharp enough to avoid going into the barriers.  Unlike a rider before him, he did manage to keep from flipping over the wall into the crowd, but more importantly he was serious hurt.  He quickly got back onto his bike and finish the course (just 150 meters around the final bend).  All in all, it was a rough day in the office for Roy.

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.
