Dauphine Stage Five: Watching Sky


Rohan Dennis, who took over the Malliot Jeune in the time trial is keeping a close eye on Chris Froome and Team Sky as they head up the final climb of the day.  Peaking over everyone's shoulders is Alberto Contrador, now riding for Team Saxo Tinkoff.  Sky is in the enviable position of having two riders at the front who are within striking distance of the overall lead, Richie Porte and Chris Froome.  For Dennis it was not the climb he wanted it to be, he was dropped after one attack after another was launched against the Malliot Jeune Group.  For some reason, he did the whole climb in his large chain ring, the harder set of gears.  I would hate to think that he is no longer in yellow because his derailleur decided to stop working.  This is an original watercolor and ink postcard that can be yours through my artist website.  Just follow the direct link at the end of this post.
