Tour Stage One: And Now the Catch

Lars Boom looks back to see just how close the peloton has gotten to overtaking him and the rest of the breakaway.  The group had been away for nearly 140 kilometers, but the sprinters had visions of stage victories and yellow jerseys dancing in their heads.  You can be sure that no little break away was going to spoil their dreams.  This is the first race for the new team sponsor, Belkin.  The team raced the Dauphine, Tour de Suisse and the Giro d'Italia under the name of Blanco. It seems that Lars wants to give his new sponsor some much valued TV coverage.  This is an original watercolor and ink postcard that could be yours by going to my artist website.  Just follow the direct link at the end of this post to get on your piece of the 100th Tour de France.
