Tour of Britain, Stage 6: Pressing on Alone

Giovanni Visconti (Movistar) had dropped the last member of the break away  as he summitted the penultimate climb of the day.  He was hoping he could recreate the magic of the last two stages and hold off the whole of the peloton on the way to the line.  With twenty kilometers left to the top of the final rise of the day and the finish line, it is a tall order.  Particularly  with so many  riders hoping to shake up the general classification just a minute or two behind.  All Visconti can do is keep pedaling has hard as he can and let what happens behind happen.

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.
