Tour Down Under: Adding Another, Final Stage and final painting

Andre Greipel (Lotto Belisol) had told Paul Sherwen that he had a plan for the final sprint of the Tour Down Under and apparently it was the right plan.  So he was the one to raise his arms in a victory salute on the streets of Adelaide (for the stage).  A few more bikes back it was Simon Gerrans pumping his fists in the air as he claimed the over all win of the Santos Tour Down Under.  Both riders set new records with Gerrans clinging his third win of the overall (a new record) and Greipel won his 16th stage the most stage wins of any rider in the Santos Tour Down Under.  I have enjoyed this race and I hope that you have enjoyed my paintings of this wonderful battle on two wheels.  And thank you to www.cycling.tv for access to the race and to Phil Ligget and Paul Sherwen for their entertaining, insightful and informative commentary.  This is an original watercolor and ink postcard that could be yours by visiting my artist web site at www.greigleach.com or you could just follow the direct link at the end of this post.
