Dauphine Stage Five: Tete de la Course

Tete de la Course, which literally translates to "head of the race" and is how the race TV coverage lets you know where you are in the race.  On mountain stages, the racers end up all over the course with break aways, the group containing the yellow jersey, or the contenders and the riders who are attacking or being dropped from one group or another.  It becomes difficult to understand who is where.  This is Wellens riding for Lotto, taking a drink and pushing on up the mountain.  This is an original watercolor and ink postcard that is available for purchase at my artist website.   Just follow the direct link at the end of this post.
