Tour, Stage 5: Is He Gone?

Greg Van Avermaet (BMC) and Thomas De Gendt (Lotto Soudal) had been claiming first and second (in the opposite order) over each of the climbs.  They were clearly stronger on the day than the now dropped, Andriy Grivko (Astana).  Van Avermaet looks back over his shoulder, confirming that answer to the question, "Is he gone?"  All along the course, fans are using cameras, phones and tablets at arm's length capturing their heroes of cycling toiling pass.  I prefer to use my paint brush.

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.
