Dauphine Stage Eight: Attacking in the Rain

Alejandro Valverde made a move on the penultimate climb hoping to use his descending skills to pull a move on Team Sky.  The conditions were perfect to run away on a descent because it was so wet.  With the Tour de France coming up no one wanted to risk a bad crash and put themselves out of the Tour, so it made for a slower more cautious downhill.  Alas for Valverde, he didn't have the legs to stay away on the final climb to the finish.  This is an original watercolor and ink postcard and it is available through my artist website.  Just follow the direct link at the end of this post.
