Tour, Stage 12: Cheers, Boos & Mayhem

The 21 corners of the climb up Alpe d'Huez are claimed by different nationalities.  As Romain Bardet (Ag2r La Mondiale) rode through the wild crowds of the Dutch Corner, the fans cheered, jeered and set of flares in a mainly drunken frenzy.  They were all the more excited because it was a Dutchman, Steven Kruijswik (Lotto NL Jumbo) who was leading up the climb.  They, unfortunately released a torrent of jeers and boos when Chris Froome (Sky) came through the crowd.  Many are not satisfied with the results of his abnormal tests from the Veulta.  Even worse, it appears that a fan knocked Vincenzo Nibali (Bahrain-Merida) off his bike on the climb.  He wasn't hurt, but it did ruin his chances for the stage win.

This is a small 4x6 inch original watercolor painting that is available though my website at, 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 The work sells for $75 plus shipping. And yes, international shipping is available.,-Boos-&-Mayhem--T18-66.html
