Tour Down Under: Feeling OK, Stage 3

Cadel Evans used his team, his climbing ability, his descending ability and his experience to win the stage by 15 seconds.  With time so important he forsook the traditional two armed victory, instead pedaling across the finishing line at full speed.  Only after stopping the clock did he flash the universal sign for feeling okay about his race.  The 15 seconds ahead of the charging contenders and the additional 10 second time bonus for winning the stage put Cadel into the Ochre Jersey of race leader of the Tour Down Under.  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.
