Paris Roubaix: Fighting Back
Wout Van Aert (Jumbo-Visma) wasn't having the best luck on the way to Roubaix. He had a problem on the cobbles in the Forest of Ardenne where he took a teammates bike to chase back to the peloton. After getting his back up bike from the team car after catching the peloton, he crashed on a corner. He had to chase back again, but succeed in the effort. Shockingly, he was able to be a factor in the final kilometers in the race until the multiple chases finally sapped his strength. Heinrich Haussler (Bahrain-Merida) was twice able to use the motivated Van Aert to draft his way back into the peloton.
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.
