Tour of Britain, Stage 1: There They Are

With just four of the original five left off the front, it was no surprise that the peloton was staring back at Tom Moses (JLT Condor) when he looked back.  With just ten kilometers left to Castle Douglas and the end of the stage, the sprinters teams were all about pulling the break away back into the fold.  Jasper Bovenhuis (An Post Chain Reaction) had taken all of the sprints out on course, but with the pedigree of those behind, it was doubtful he would take the final sprint to the line.  On the other hand, Peter Williams (ONE Pro Cycling) had the King of the Mountains Jersey for his efforts on the opening stage 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.
