Tour of Britain, Stage 6: Climbing Again

That had toe be the reaction of this quartet as they started up Cadbury Hill.  While none of the climbs in the Tour of Great Britain can rival the alpine stages of the Tour de France, the roads have been surprisingly lumpy.  Today's stage featured two category one climbs the second one marked the end of the stage.  The stage included two more categorized climbs, and lots of bumps in between the noted hills.  As testament to the relative ease of the early climbs, it is Jasper Bovenhis (An Post Chain Reaction) in the sprint leader's jersey, who was bringing up the rear of the early break of the day.  With him were Giovanni Visconti (Movistar), Tom Stewart (Madison Genesis) and Miguel Angel Benito (Caja Rural Seguros).

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.
