Tour of Britain Final Stage: Making Room

While the top three positions on the general classification were all done and dusted, there was everything to race for in the intermediate sprints with the points and time bonuses on offer for the three sprints.  Peter Williams and Angel Madrazo were fighting out the sprint jersey, that Williams was wearing on loan from Madrazo since he had won the King of the Mountains classification.  Williams broke the rules of sprinting taking his hand off of the handlebars as he warned Madrazo of his location on the road.  This sprint won Williams the Sprint Jersey and Jack Bauer's first place in this sprint was enough to move him from 6th to 5th place overall.  After this sprint all of the combatants sat up having achieved their objectives for the day.  The other two in the break kept going only to be caught a lap or two later.  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 2013 Tour of Britain's race through London.
