Fleche Wallone: It Is Possible

Bob Jungel (Quickstep) was able to rid himself of his companion, Alessandro De Marchi (BMC) as he scaled the wall that is the Mur de Huy for the final time.  Jungel went under the flame rouge maring the final kilometer of the race with about twenty seconds on the closing peloton.  The minute per ten kilometer rule implied that he had enough to win.  Should he be able to hold off those behind, he would be the first from Luxembourg to win Fleche Wallone.  However, the steepest section of the climb was yet to come.  But a win is still possible.

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.

With the start of the Giro d'Italia, I will be crowd funding my third cycling art book through Kickstarter.  Please feel free to become a follower of this blog to be informed of the project and your chance to participate in helping to make it happen.
