Tour, Stage 19: Setting the Pace

Rafal Majka (Tinkoff) had a strong teammate willing to ride on the front up the monster of a climb, the Montee de Bisanne, the Croatian Robert Kiserlovski.  Riding on the wheel of the Maillot a Pois is the man who beat him near the summit of Mont Ventoux, Jarlinson Pantano.  Of course, Majka didn't when that day, but he did claimed most of the King of the Mountain points on the day, enough to give him a near unassailable lead in the competition.  Still hanging tough is the Frenchman, Alexis Vuillermoz (Ag2r La Mondiale).

All along the roads of the Tour de France are not only thousands and thousands of cycling fans, but hundreds of camper vans, tents and make shift sleeping accommodations, as well.

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.

Be sure to check out my second cycling art book, Art of Cycling: Richmond 2015 UCI Road World Championships, available online or through your local book seller.
