Tour Down Under Stage 3: Doing the Work

With the leader's Ochre Jersey on the back of their team leader, Richie Porte, it was time for BMC to do the work of pulling back the break.  Doing the lion share of the effort was the neo-pro Miles Scotson who is also the brand new Australian national champion.  Joining him in the effort are two of his teammates, Francisco Ventoso and Danilo Wyss  The last time I remember painting Scotson was when he was on the ground after crashing in the Under 23 Road World Championships in 2015 in Richmond Virginia.  Scotson had crashed on the same piece of road that has bitten off some of my skin in the past.

The painting of Scotson along with all of the action of the 2015 UCI Road World Championships are available in my book Art of Cycling:  Richmond 2015 UCI Road World Championships available at www.artofcycling.bike

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.
