Tour, Stage 19: Off the Final Mountain

The very last chance to gain time on one's rivals was on the final descent of the Tour, the Col d'Aubisque.  Primoz Roglic (Lotto NL Jumbo) used the fearlessness that he developed when he was an alpine ski jumper to fly down the back side of the mountain.  Roglic knew that Chris Froome ahd been dropped on the final kilometer of the climb, so if he could just keep the Brit from catching back on, he could take over third in the general classification.  Behind the Slovenian, Tom Dumoulin (Sunweb) was using the same circumstances to improve his position ahead of the time trial tomorrow.  Unfortunately for Dumoulin, the Maillot Jaune of Geraint Thomas (Sky) was right on his wheel.  It certainly look like Thomas was going to give up any time, let alone two minutes to the Dutchman.  Bringing up the visual tail of the group (there are more just out of sight) is the aggressor of the stage, Romain Bardet (Ag2r La Mondiale).

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.
