Tour of Britain Stage 5: What Is the Gap?

The heroic climber of the Tour de France, Nairo Quintana, showed his colors today on the Caerphilly Mountain climb, jumping away from the Team Sky led peloton on the first of two ascents of the mountain.  Only Bongiorno of Team Bardiani was able to match his acceleration, although many others tried in vain.  As with all attacks, the aggressor takes a quick look behind to see just who came along and just how successful the effort has been.  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.
