Paris Roubaix: Looking to Bridge Across

As he entered the section 14 of pave, Arnaud Demare (FDJ) decided to try and bridge across to the small group that included Peter Sagan (Bora Hansgrohe) and others.  Each section of cobblestones are number in descending order and color coded by difficulty.  The yellow banner at the start of this section lets the riders now that this is a three star section - a medium difficulty section.  Demare never did make it to the front group, and soon found himself back in the main peloton.  But at the risk of a spoiler alert, he did manage to finish in the top ten and as the highest place French rider.

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.
