Tour, Stage 9, Making a Move

Somehow I missed that Jasper Stuyven (Trek-Segafredo), Jan Tratnik (Bahrain Merida) and Tiesj Benoot (Lotto Soudal) were responding to an attack from the break.  I thought it was Benoot who had started the attacks and Tratnik and Stuyven were joining him in the effort.  The break away had grown to 15 guys and more importantly had over ten minutes on the peloton back down the road.  With that kind of gap the stage winner was coming from the break (again) and some weren't doing their share of the work.

Quite a bit was made of the motos in the Tour providing a draft to some riders during the finale of yesterday's race.  Given the hub-bub I thought I should include one in at least one painting.  I don't think it was much of a big deal.  As Jens Voigt said, "If you want the advantage that usually goes to the attackers, then go on the attack."

See this painting come to life in this time lapse film clip:

This is a small 4x6 inch original watercolor painting that is available though my website at, 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 The work sells for $75 plus shipping. And yes, international shipping is available.
