Amgen ToC, Stage 3: Flying Solo
Having left his break away companion on the way up Mount Hamilton, Remi Cavagna (Deceuninck-Quickstep) took off on a very long solo effort to win the stage. He has set himself the task of staying off the front, alone, for over 70 kilometers. He did start the effort with a ten minute head start on the main peloton, so it wasn't completely impossible. He wasn't the most gifted descender, scaring the commentating trio of Phil Liggett, Bob Roll and Christian Vandevelden. I wasn't enjoying watching him mishandle practiacally every corner either. His erstwhile companion, Alex Hoehn (Team USA) pulled back about two minutes on the descent, but it wasn't enough to come back together.
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.
