Tour, Stage 19: Up in the Clouds

I haven't commented on it yet, but this is the first Tour I have ever watched where it hasn't rained.  I hope I am not jinking the peloton for the last two days of the Tour.  In fact only at the top of the Col d'Aubisque have I even seen clouds.  Of course, given the height of the final climb of the Tour, the riders were in these clouds.  By this point over the summit, the stage hopefuls and the general classification guys have all joined up on the front of the race. Bob Jungels (Quick Step) and Gorka Izaguirre (Bahrain Merida) are both hanging on to the back of the group in the respective national jerseys.  The group is being lead by the Sky duo of Egan Bernal and Chris Froome.  Froome has now become a super domestique (super-duper to say the least) for the Maillot Jaune of his teammate Geraint Thomas.  Tom Dumoulin (Sunweb) still hopes to upset the apple cart although it looks less and less likely with every pedal stroke, and the ever agressive Dan Martin (UAE Team Emirates) is still hoping for another stage victory.

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.
