Ronde van Vlaanderen: From the Start

As soon as the start flag was pulled in, the attacks went off the front.  With the peloton facing 260 kilometers in the saddle, it was literally a long shot to succeed with the break away.  This early group of escapees included Julien Morice (Direct Energie), Oliviero Troia (UAE Abu Dhabi), Mark McNally (Wanty Groupe Gobert), Stef Van Zummeren (Veranda's Willems-Crelan), and Julian Duval (Ag2r La Mondiale).  In the distance you can see others trying to bridge across to the group.  They did gain over eleven minutes before the big names decided to bring them back into the fold.

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.

It seems that the gremlins have reappeared in my interface with technology.  I am unable to upload the artwork to my website so if you are interested in purchase this piece please email me at
