Tour of Britain, Final Stage: At Full Speed

With everyone tucked back into the peloton, or kicked out of the back, it was time for the lead out trains to take hold of the front of the peloton.  With so many teams still looking for a stage victory, it was hard for anyone team to take complete control.  Added to that was the smaller six man teams that just didn't allow for domination of the peloton.  Ben Swift (Sky) had the Etixx-Quickstep sprinter, Maximillano Richeze on his wheel rather than his own Elia Vivianni.  Mixing it up behind were the teams of ONE Pro Cycling, LottoNL Jumbo and Lotto Soudal, all hoping it would be their fast man who claimed the final stage of the Tour of Britain.

This is a small watercolors and ink painting measuring just 4"x6" and was created using Yarka St. Petersburg watercolors and Steve Quiller brushes from www.richesonart.com.  This painting and all of my Olympics artwork will be available through my artist website at www.greigleach.com.  To purchase this particular painting just follow the direct link at the end of this post.  It is only $75 USD and international shipping is available.
