Paris Nice Stage 3 Getting Organized

As the finishing town of Chalon sur Saone got ever closer the peloton began to group itself by teams  Coming to the front were the teams of Lotto Soudal and Direct Energie for their sprinters while the teams of FDJ and Sky were simply trying to stay near the front to keep their protected riders out of trouble  Within the final kilometers on a flatter stage everyone wants to be near the front for various reasons to the pace continues to grow and positioning is fought for  Just that action will doom any breaks up the road even before the sprinters' leadouts really ramp up the speed

I apologize for the lack of punctuation but the gremlins are still denying me periods commas semi-colons and question marks  Perhaps I will devise a work around before the race reaches the Mediterranean Sea

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.
