Tour of Britain, Stage 3: After More Points

Both Nicolas Roche (Sky) and Xandro Meurisse (Wanty Group Gobert) started the day equal on points in the King of the Mountain competition, but it was Meurisse who wore the black jersey of the KOM leader (due to count back).  Roche was able to beat Meurisse to the summit of the Brickhouse climb moving him one point ahead on the road.  The four break away riders had already claimed the first four positions at the summit.  But that left Roche adding two points and Meurisse with one additional point.

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.
