Tour Stage Three: Winding Up the Trains

The Tour organization changed the rules for the intermediate sprints, setting only one sprint per stage and increasing the number of sprint points available.  This change made the sprinters react with the original intended intensity of racing.  In today's stage both Sagan's Cannondale Team and Kittel's Argos-Shimano Team set about leading their men out for as many points as possible (most having gone to the five man break away up the road).  This is an original watercolor and ink postcard and it 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.
