Tour, Stage: Passing the Devil

There are thousands and thousands of costumed fans along the course of the Tour de France, but none so famous as The Devil.  I am sorry that I don't remember his name, or I would give it to you here.  It was a treat to catch side of this leaping fan of the Tour.  I hope I am as spry when my beard is as white as his.  Steve Cummings (Dimension Data) didn't seem to make a deal as he rode by, going solo to the base of the Col d'Aspin.  Instead he seemed more intent on getting information from his Director Sportif.

I have been told that his name is Didi Senft.  Good to know!

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.
