Tour, Stage 7: Looking for the Others

The duo of Fabian Cancellara (Trek-Segafredo) and David Navarro (Cofidis) proved to fast going down hill for the rest of those in the break away.  Once they hit the valley below, Spartacus looked back over his shoulder to find out where they all had gone.  The streets were lined with the traditional plane trees and thousands of cheering fans welcoming the racers to the first stage in the  Pyrenees.  I am not quite sure why the current time trial champion of Switzerland is up in the front group unless it is to help his teammate Jasper Stuyven across the flatter roads in a bid to retake the Maillot a Pois.

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.

You can see this painting come to life on my facebook page,
