Tour, Stage 9: Who Is Back There?
The roads under the wheels of the peloton were not very forgiving today.  Others however, were able to use the paves to their advantage.  Michal Kwiatkowski (Sky) looks back over his shoulder to make sure he still has his man, Chris Froome.  Just behind, le...

Tour, Stage 9: A Drink Before the Cobbles
I am somewhat at the mercey of the video broadcast of the Tour, so I wasn't able to paint the peloton hitting the first section of pave today.  Instead, this is section 14, d'Eswars a Paillencourt, (counting backwards to Roubaix).  Just before the day's bre...

Tour, Stage 9: Shades of 2014
For those who don't get the title of this painting, it is two fold.  First like Richie Porte (BMC) crashed out of this Tour de France with out every putting a wheel on a single pave, just as Chris Froome (Sky) did back in 2014 (the last time the Tour raced ...

Tour, Stage 8: Leading the Parade
Today is Bastille Day and the French in (and out of) the peloton all hope to win on their national holiday.  Regardless of the slim chance that a break away will succeed on a preceived sprint stage, Fabien Grellier (Direct Energie) went out to lead the race...

Tour, Stage 8: Rolling Along
Another flat stage and another rather relaxed peloton.  Again the group was falling behind the slowest predicted finishing time.  Perhaps all were saving themselves for the mini "Hell of the North" tomorrow.  Each of the sprinter's teams put a rider on the ...

Tour, Stage 7: Someone New
Yes, I realize that yesterday's stage was one by someone other than Fernando Gaviria (Quickstep) and Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe), but that was a steep uphill finish.  Today, it was a pure sprinter's stage with a clean approach to the line.  Today, it was D...
