US Pro Challenge Stage Two: Attacking the Final Climb

These three are fighting it out on the final climb knowing that who ever gets across the line will almost definitely pull on the Yellow Jersey.  The two on the motorcycle in the referee jerseys are the sign board time keepers.  They let the riders know what the time splits are on the road, a hold over from before the days of race radios in the peloton's ears.  All of the climbs were lined with very enthusiastic fans carrying and wearing flags, costumes and speedos.  Just around the corner Mattias put in a blistering attack in an attempt to gain the stage and Yellow.  This is an original watercolor and ink postcard that is available 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 US Pro Challenge.
