Tour of Britain, Stage 4: Using Team Tactics

The two climbers competing for the King of the Mountains Jersey have been Nicolas Roche (Sky) and Xandro Meurisse (Wanty Group Gobert).  The pair had traded best of the rest on the first two climbs of the day, leaving Meurisse in the lead by one point.  As they approached the final climb of the day, the first four placings had already been claimed by the breakaway.  With 2 points of the next guy over the summit, and one of the next one, Wanty Group Gobert sent Marco Marcato up the road to get the two points.  Now with just one point left, the best Roche could to was pull back even.  However, Meurisse was able to get the final KOM point of the stage.  I am sure this competition will go all the way to London.

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.
