Greig Leach the Art of the Tour de France 3

Today’s offering from artist Greig Leach is from yesterday’s Stage 17 of the Tour de France recalling the moment when Belkin’s Bauke Mollema misjudged a final corner and slid into the barrier. The 26-year-old Dutchman had started the day in second place in GC, 4’14” behind Team Sky’s Chris Froome, but having lost time on both of the category 2 climbs of yesterday’s 32km ITT the encounter with the barrier sealed his fate and he ended the day in fourth overall place.


Greig Leach is a one-time amateur club bike racer, participating in the DC and Richmond, Virginia areas of the US; he’s also a talented (and successful) artist sponsored by Richeson Art, with a passion for capturing the urgency and energy of the Pro Tours. Throughout this week we will be bringing you some of his highlights. To learn more about his work and for details of his substantial output from this year’s Tour see and also – below Greig’s picture of Mollema’s misfortune is the video of the incident, a reminder of just how precarious a position in GC is…
