Tour, Stage 6: Did You See Him Coming?

The two marquee sprinters of this Tour where chatting after the intermediate sprint in Plouguernevel.  Each were marking the other with Fernando Gaviria (Quick Step) crossing the line just ahead of the Maillot Vert of Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe).  Neither saw, nor were able to out sprint, the European Champion, Alexander Kristoff (UAE Team Emirates).  Both were so sure that no one else could come around them (even if they were at full speed), that Kristoff was able to jump them both.  There weren't enough points on offer, with the five main break still up the road, to radically alter the points tally.  But it does let Gaviria and Sagan know that there are still other sprinters in the Tour.

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.
