Tour, Stage 8: Having to Chase

The Irishman, Dan Martin (UAE Team Emirates) is seeing both sides of this Tour de France.  He took the stage atop Mur de Bretagne two days ago and today he finds himself in a desperate chase at the end of stage 8.  With just four kilometers left to the line in Amiens, it doesn't look like the bloodied Martin will see the peloton again.  In fact despite the efforts of his teammates, including Kristijan Durasek, he lost just under a minute on the day.  His Tour is now where near over, but the mishap didn't help his chances.  It does remain to be seen if his injuries were relatively minor (as they appear) or if they included broken bones and torn ligaments.  The racer's adrenaline will help them jump back up and finish a stage but it may hide the actual damage that has been done.

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.
