Fleche Wallone: Take This One!

Even the best riders and mechanics can't keep things from going wrong.  Dan Moreno (Movistar) managed to snap a chain while passing through the town of Huy for the first time.  The Italian let his team car know what the problem was via radio and then pulled off to await a new bike.  The entire team in the car jumped out to get Moreno another bike an get him back racing as quickly as possible.  With another 60 kilometers left to race, it was certain that Moreno would be back in the peloton in support of his team leader, Alejandro Valverde.

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.
