Tour Down Under: Fighting It Out, Stage 3

Cadel Evans went into the stage with a plan and a team that helped him realize his goal.  Having used the rest of BMC to push a super high pace up Corkscrew Hill it was left to him to launch the final attack before the summit of the climb.  When he went it was only Richie Porte that could hang onto his wheel, initially helping with the pace setting.  But in the end, it was Cadel that rode the complete peloton off his wheel, not only up the hill but down as well.  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 to get this small piece of the Tour Down Under.
