Tour, Stage 19: This Jersey Is His!

Rafal Majka (Tinkoff) went alone to the top of the big climb of the day.  As he grabbed the maximum points over the HC climb of the Montee de Bisanne, he cemented his hold on the Maillot a Pois.  There are now not enough points left in the Tour to take his King of the Mountains title away from him.  So today, two guys who ride for Team Tinkoff earned a leader's jersey in the Tour.  Peter Sagan can no longer be caught in the race for the Maillot Vert and Majka can't be caught either.  All both have to do is stay upright, beat the time cut for two more days and they will be on the podium in Paris.  Chapeau to you both.  Now with the rain starting to fall, staying up right may well be a challenge for them and the rest of the peloton.

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.

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.
