Tour of Britain, Final Stage: Riding Around with Yellow

Unlike the Tour de France, there was no promenade around the streets of the capitol city of the Tour of Britain.  With a group up the road, it fell to Team Dimension Data to ride tempo, not letting the escapees get to far away.  So Mark Cavendish rode in behind the Yellow Jersey of Steve Cummings with the rest of the team on the front including, Johann Van Zyl, Jay Robert Thomson, Mark Renshaw, and Bernhard Eisel.  It is reported that Cavendish has been ill for much of the Tour, but stayed in the race to help his teammate ensure Yellow on the final podium of the race.

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.
