Tour de France-WIP in oil

As my husband loves to bike and Tour de France is one of his favourite events to watch on TV
last year I decided to make him a present- to paint him a painting depicting this exciting event.
As a reference I used a photo from a last year's issue of Velonews Magazine.The pictures in this magazine are great.
So,slowly but surely I go on working on my painting and I hope I will be able to finish it for my husband's birthday which is in July.The only problem is that oil paints dry up so slowly.
The size of the painting is 16x20.
