Tour Down Under: Can I Get a Drink?, Stage 3

With temperatures in the nineties it is important for the riders to keep their fluids high, without it they risk cramps, bonking and losing the ability to recover before racing the next day.  While the riders have two way radios to keep in touch with their Director Sportif, it is still tradition for the racer to raise his arm to call the team car forward.  The break as already dropped Jerome Cousin, who coming from winter in Europe, had not acclimated to the heat of the Australian summer.  So now the break is down to Grivko (Astana), Voight (Trek) and Meyer (Drapac).  This is an original watercolor and ink postcard that could be yours by visiting my artist website, or you could just follow the direct link at the end of this post.
