Tour of Britain, Stage 5: Moinard Goes Again!

The first to attack out of the break was the Frenchman, Amael Moinard (BMC).  On his first attempt up the final rise before the town of Bath, he was quickly reeled in by most of his former companions. The accelerations proved too much for Johnny McEvoy (NFTO) but then he has moved into second overall in the Sprint Point competition having taken all three sprints on the day.  Moinard went again with just 2.4 kilometers left to race.  He has 27 seconds on the peloton, so it is still touch and go on whether he'll get to the line before the peloton gets to him.  Hopefully he will be rewarded with the most competitive rider at the very least.

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.
