Tour, Stage 19: Fighting to Stay in Yellow
The entire country of France, and most of the cycling world, has been waiting to see if Julian Alaphilippe (Deceuninck-Quick Step) could hold onto the Maillot Jaune in the Alps. Today the one two punch from Team Ineos put him in difficulty on the final kilometers on the HC Catagory climb of the Col de l'Iseran. Yesterday, he got dropped a little closer to the top of the HC climb, but was able to rejoin on the descent. I am sure he was pushing himself to the limit to repeat the feat today. The final climb of the day shouldn't be too severe for his abilities, so for now he just needed to limit his loses. No one knew what was going to happen in the valley below.
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.
