Tour, Stage 21: Mutual Respect
I love this gesture between teammates, Egan Bernal (Ineos) and Geraint Thomas. Thomas would surely have loved to repeat his Tour victory from last year, but yet he saluted his teammate in genuine respect. The team regularly cross the line arm in arm at the back of the peloton, perhaps because of Bernal's competitive spirit, he wanted to be close, just to avoid lossing any seconds whatsoever. Listen, better safe than sorry. So these two are also first and second in this Tour. Bernal also takes home the Maillot Blance, with Peter Sagan in the Maillot Vert, and the Frenchman Romain Bardet takes home the Maillot a Pois. Don't forget Julian Alaphilippe, he was awarded the most aggressive rider of the 2019 Tour de France. Chapeau to everyone who started the Tour, and a deeper bow to those who finished it.
This is the final painting of the Tour de France. I do planned to paint the UCI World Road Racing Championships, but most likely that will be it for this season.
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.
