Tour, Stage 4: After the Sprint

Apparently the four marquee sprinter's of this year's Tour are all planning on fighting it out for the Maillot Vert.  All four, Peter Sagan (Tinkoff), Mark Cavendish (Dimension Data), Andre Greipel (Lotto Soudal) and Marcel Kittel (Etixx-Quickstep) fought it out for the 5th place at the Intermediate sprint point in Bouille Menard.  Fifth place because the break away of four was still up the road, although only by just over a minute now.  Sagan took the most points, but Cavendish kept it close enough to hold onto the Green Jersey outright (thus far).

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.
