Tour, Stage 3: Two for France

Thomas Voeckler (Direct Energie) went straight from the back of the peloton to the very tete de la course in about ten kilometers.  Whether he was merely bored with the rather slow pace of the race, or trying to alleviate the burden of chasing from his team, the ever entertaining Voeckler jumped away from the peloton and joined his lone countryman up the road.  I am quite sure that Armindo Fonseca (Fortuneo Vital Concept) was glad of the company, particularly when it was such an experienced and strong rider who came up to join him.  The French fans along the side of the road were very pleased to have two of their compatriots to cheer on and wave the tri-colore for.

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.
