Tour, Stage 18: Still Here

And he is still in the race!  Lawson Craddock (EF Education First), the American who crashed badly on the first day of the Tour is still hanging on the back of the peloton.  He broke his scapula and got a bunch of stitches over his left eye.  He decided he would donate a $100 for every day he could stay in the Tour, and challenged others to donate as well.  He has raised over $120,000 for a Houston, Texas velodrome that was destroyed on the hurricane last year.  Ahead of the American ride Rory Sutherland (UAE Team Emirates), Wout Poels (Sky) the loyal hard working teammate of Chris Froome, and the Maillot a Pois of Julian Alaphilippe (Quick Step).  With just 12 K left to ride today, Alaphilippe dropped back to save his legs for the last day of climbing tomorrow.  It is doubtful that anyone can take the jersey from him, he is sure to go in the break again on stage 19.

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.
