Tour Stage Two: Away with Under 4 K

With most of the sprinters left behind on the first big climb of the Tour including the Malliot Jaune it looked like a good day to jump away to steal the stage and get into the Malliot Jaune.  With that in mind, Fuglsang, Flecha (again), Bakelants, Boasson Hagen, and Chavanel (hoping to give himself a birthday present) jumped away in search of glory.  With just four kilometers to go and the remaining sprinters and their teams bearing down fast and hard it just didn't seem likely that these guys would carry the day.  This is an original watercolor and ink postcard that is available at my artist website.  Just follow the direct link at the end of this post to get your piece of the 100th Tour de France.
