Tour of Britain Stage Two: I Know They're Back There

Day two of the Tour of Britain did not see any better weather, but it is the Scottish Highlands what else could one expect.  Dan Martin and Nairo Quintana along with another Moviestar team mate, jumped away from the rest of the peloton on the final categorized climb of the day in hopes of repeating their exploits of the Tour de France.  I imagine that the Irishman had an advantage when it came to the cold wet conditions of the stage, but all three riders had the disadvantage of having the climb come to far out from the end of the stage.  Martin seems to be able to intuit that the peloton is not far away and is just trying to get a visual confirmation of what he feels to be true.  This is an original watercolor and ink postcard that you can own by going to my artist website where you can purchase this piece.  Just follow the direct link at the end of this post to get your piece of the 2013 Tour of Britain.  While you are there check out works from four other major races from the 2013 racing season.
