Tour, Stage 5: Flying Towards Yellow

Greg Van Avermaet (BMC) had dropped the final member of the early break away on the ascent of the Col du Perthus, with that he may well be on his way to a stage victory, a Maillot a Pois, and a Maillot Jaune.  Van Avermaet flew down the other side of the mountain, speeding along alone under the 10 K to go banner.  Using the one minute gained by the peloton for every ten kilometers covered, there was no way that Van Avermaet would see any of his teammates until they met up in the team bus later this evening.

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.
