Tour of Britain Final Stage: Victory in London

There were two victors in London today, one finished wearing the Golden Jersey of race leader, Bradley Wiggins and the other wears the British National Championship Jersey, Mark Cavendish.  Cav was able to claim his third stage win in the 2013 Tour of Britain due largely to the strength of his lead out train and his final pilot fish, Alejandro Petacchi.  For the second day in a row, Petacchi gabbed the peloton and actually had to coast through the final turn so that Cavendish could catch back onto the wheel of his last lead out man.  Elia Viviani managed to pull a respectable third with two different local teams mixing it in with the pro tour teams.  This is an original watercolor and ink postcard that is available through my artist website.  Just follow the direct link at the end of this post to get your piece of the 2013 Tour of Britain.
