Tour, Stage 2: Just Enough

It was Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe) who had the perfectly time lunge to claim victory in La Rouche sur Yon.  There was a crash with about 500 meters to go that took out both Michael Mathews (Sunweb) and Fernando Gaviria (Quick Step).  It didn't seem to make the sprint any easier for the World Champion.  He just barely held of the closing Italian, Sonny Colbrelli (Bahrain-Merida).  For the second time today, it was Arnaud Demare (Groupama-FDJ) who opened up the sprint, but saw Sagan go around for the victory.  Sagan's win earned him both the Maillot Jaune and the Maillot Vert.  Apparently, the last time the Tour finished in La Rouche sur Yon, it was the wearer of the Rainbow Jersey who tooked the stage.  As Sagan said in the post-race interview, "the same story keeps repeating over and over."

This is a small 4x6 inch original watercolor painting that is available though my website at www.greigleach.com, 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 Richesonart.com. The work sells for $75 plus shipping. And yes, international shipping is available.
