Tour, Stage 19: Not What He Needed
As the peloton started up the Montee d'Aussois, Thibaut Pinot (Groupama-FDJ) dropped back to the doctor's car. He was apparently getting a tight wrap on his left thigh along with a heavy dose of the magic spray. I can't imagine trying to climb mountains on my bike with a tightly wrapped bandage on my thigh. Pinot was in obvious pain, and kept dropping further back as the peloton went on up the mountain. He had started the stage in fifth place and just 30 seconds behind the anticipated future leaders of the Tour. In other words, without this, he may well have taken over the Maillot Jaune today. This was clearly not what he needed to happen.
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.
