The Colors of the Peloton

As the Tour de France fades into memory, it's the simple images that remain -- like the beautiful colors of the peloton...

Painting this watercolor, I imagined all the sounds the peloton makes as it races by: the chains slipping through the gear cogs, tires humming on the road, and the air being pushed out of the way. With that kind of soundtrack in the background, the colors of the jerseys, bicycles, and helmets must seem to leap off the pavement...
