Tour, Stage 2: Slipping Off the Front

Not really sure if Tom Jelte Slagter (Cannondale-Drapac) meant to be leaving the peloton behind, but it is certainly what he did on the final climb of the day up the Cote de La Glacerie.  Slagter knew that now there was just one man up the road but there wasn't much road left to chase him down.

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.
