Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne: Back in Europe

After racing below and near the equator, the peloton has now begun its campaign on the roads of northern Europe.  The riders face short steep climbs, many covered with pave and line with enthusiastic cold cycling fans cheering them on.  With a traditional early break up the road, it fell to Ian Stannard (Sky) - followed by Greg Van Avermaet (BMC) - to pull the peloton along in pursuit across the roads of Belgium.

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.
