Tour, Stage 18: Getting Started

Every road stage, with the exception of yesterday, begins with a neutral start.  The group rolls out for as much as 15 kilometers before the race gets truly underway.  This allows the riders to warm up their legs and to get themselves sorted out.  Some want to be right up at the front to start their attempts to get in the break.  Others want to get out of the way of the early aggressions, and others just want to ease in to the day.  Never the less, when Christian Prudhomme drops that flag at the 0 kilometer marker, it is time to race.

See this painting come to life at my You Tube channel where I hope you will become a subscriber.  When you are there, you will be able to see one painting from every stage thus far being created as I talk about the race, the painting and many things cycling and art.

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.
