Tour, Stage 2: Time to Go

With the peloton finally starting to close the gap and the final climb of the day just a few kilometers up the road, Jasper Stuyven (Trek-Segafredo) decided it was time to attack.  The Belgium rider quickly opened daylight between himself and this now former compatriots of the break.  It was only Paul Voss (Bora-Argon 18) who had the legs to try and chase down the attacking Stuyven.  Poor Vegard Breen (Fortuneo Vital Concept) just didn't have anything left after leading the peloton for over 180 kilometers.

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.
