Tour, Stage 18: Not Today!
"Not Today" or the French version thereof, had to be what was going through the mind of Julian Alaphilippe (Deceuninck-Quick Step) as he came to the line with all but one of his main rivals. He did lost five seconds of his overall lead, but he lost 30 seconds to the Maillot Blanc of Egan Bernal (Ineos). Emanuel Buchman (Bora-Hansgrohe) lead the gaggle of the top ten across the line along with Steven Kruijswijk (Jumbo-Visma), Thibaut Pinot (Groupama-FDJ), Geraint Thomas (Ineos), Mikel Landa (Movistar) and just tagging on to the back, Rigoberto Uran (EF Education First) making the stage a draw. With just two more days of real racing, it is going to be full on tomorrow and Saturday.
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.
