US Pro Challenge Stage 5: Leaving Everything on the Road

Andrew Talansky road as hard as possible in the TT around Vail, Colorado, leaving every last ounce of energy spent out on the course.  He basically fell off of his bike with the team helpers trying to catch him before he left himself on the road as well.  In a post race interview, he said that his oxygen debt was so severe that he was nearly blacking out in the last 100 meters of the race.  All of his effort was enough to put him into the stage lead by over a minute, at least until the last man on the course came in.  This is an original watercolor and ink postcard that can be yours by bidding in a short three day auction on ebay.  Just follow the direct link at the end of this post to get your piece of the third running of the US Pro Challenge.
