Fleche Wallone: Surrendering

As the kilometer rolled along, and the peloton came ever closer, the riders in the break began to surrender to the inevitable catch.  Daniel Pearson (Aqua Blue) with Nils Politt (Katusha-Alpecin) tucked onto his wheel, peered back over his shoulder to see the Lotto Soudal led peloton breathing down his neck.  The pair had been off the front of the peloton for almost two hundred kilometers, so there was no shame in the capture.

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.
