Paris Nice, Stage 7: Testing the Legs

Today has been dubbed the Queen Stage, the next to last stage of this year's Paris Nice.  And it was a doosey of a stage, too.  The peloton faced three category 1 climbs and a category 2 along the way, the third category one summit was the end of the stage atop the Col de la Couillole.  On the penultimate climb of the day, Jakob Fulgsang (Astana) decided he would have a stretch of his legs and see just how much of a gab he could open up on the following peloton.  Too many in the group behind knew of Fulgsang's strength, so there was no letting the Dane go.

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.
