Tour, Stage 10: Soaking It All In

Julian Alaphilippe (Quick Step) had plenty of time to celebrate his first ever stage victory in the Tour de France.  But it was more than that, it was the first stage for a Frenchman in this Tour, and it is also the 50th win for his team this season.  An amazing victory done with amazing nerve and stunning legs.  Had he not lost time who knows how many jerseys he would have won today.  But he is now the new owner of the Maillot a Pois, the polka dot jersey of best climber in the Tour.  With two more stages in the Alps, the next two ending on the top of the mountain, it will be interesting to see how he fares before heading down to the Pyrennes.  He did pulled back three minutes on the leaders of the race, but he started the day almost 14 minutes behind the man who took fourth on the stage, Greg Van Avermaet.

This is a small 4x6 inch original watercolor painting that is available though my website at www.greigleach.com, or you can simply follow the direct link at the end of this post.  Since it is an original it is first come first served.  The painting was created using Yarka St Petersburg watercolors from Richesonart.com. The work sells for $75 plus shipping. And yes, international shipping is available.
