Dauphine Stage Five: Riding Everyone Off

Busche the last member of the morning break away was caught with just 300 meters left to race. He most likely would have made it except for the attack by Alberto Contrador and the counter by Chris Froome.  I think that Froome wanted to pay back all of the work Team Sky had done on the climb by taking the stage win.  The stage win also was enough to put Froome into the Malliot Jeune.  All in all a great day for Froome and for Team Sky.  Contrador showed that he is coming into form after is miserable showing in the time trial.  This is an original watercolor and ink postcard that is available for purchase through my artist website.   Just follow the direct link at the end of this post.
