Tour of Britain, Stage 7b: Sneaking Away

Nicola Boem (Bardiani-CSF) used the penultimate climb of the day to jump clear of the peloton.  With just 16 kilometers left to race, he was hoping to make it around the streets of Bristol just that much quicker than everyone else.  After the summit, there is about three kilometers of flat road before the course twists and turns back down to the river.  He may have the advantage over the peloton after those three k, but it power is in the group before the descent.  Bouna fortuna, il mio amico!

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.
