Fleche Wallone: Down by the River

Alessandro De Marchi (BMC) was able to use the tight turn at the top of the Cote de Cherave to open up a gap on those that had grapped his wheel on the climb.  The Italian dropped into an aerodynamic tuck and went off in search of the town of Huy.  The river bank made for a scenic ride towards the penultimate scaling of the Mur de Huy - not that he had anytime to take in the scenery.

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  This painting and all of my Olympics artwork will be available through my artist website at  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.
