Tour, Stage 1: This Is for Yellow

It was Mike Teunissen (Jumbo Visma) who surprised everyone, even himself, by taking the opening stage of the 2019 Tour de France.  His team's designated sprinter, Dylan Groenewegen, had crashed with just a kilometer and a half to the line, so Teunissen was left to try and take the wind instead.  He Dutchman just bearly got past Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe) for the victory, the Maillot Jaune, and the Maillot Verte (although the two are equal on points).  Coming in third is Caleb Ewan (Lotto Soudal).  While I am sure he would have prefered the stage and Yellow, he did claim the first Maillot Blanc of best young rider.  The final leader's jersey, the Maillot a Pois, did go to Greg Van Avermaet (CCC). 

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.
