Tour of Britain, Stage 6: The Last Two

Miguel Angle Benito (Movistar) and Tom Stewart (Madison Genesis) were the last two that were still off of the front of the peloton as the crested the penultimate climb of the day.  The duo were hoping to carry enough of a lead through the descent to be able to hold off the GC contenders on the final ascent to Haytor Rock.  Giovanni certainly has the pedigree to accomplish the task.  He is a two-time Italian National Champion and has won several stages of the Giro d'Italia.  Steward is just thrilled to have the legs to hang onto the Italian's wheel.

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.
