Paris Roubaix: Fighting It Out on the Cobbles
On the final five star pave section it was Philippe Gilbert (Decenunick-Quick Step) and Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe) rubbing shoulders while trying to establish themselves on the front of the race. While it looked like a head-butting sprint, it was just two guys on the rivot bouncing their way to Roubaix. Behind, it was Nils Politt (Katusha-Alpecin) with Yves Lampaert (Decenunick-Quick Step) slipping backward. The crowds were huge, yet managed to not impose themselves into the race. Those racing had enough to deal with, without drunken and/or oblivious fans further endangering the competitors.
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.
