Simon Yates (Mitchelton-Scott) felt the moment was right with just eight kilometers left of climbing to launch an attack from the back of the small peloton. He was covered by Marc Soler (Movistar) and the French National Champion, Warren Barguil (Arkea Samsic). As the trio caught Ilnur Zakarin (Katusha-Alpecin) Yates seemed to invite the Russian to catch onto their wheels. Yates has two stage victories in this year's Tour already, he sure seemed to want just one more. Alas, it wasn't to be.
Watch me paint this watercolor as I talk about the Tour over the past two days on my You Tube channel :
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.
