Tour Down Under: Getting Organized, Stage 4

With just under three kilometers to go it's time for the sprinter's teams to come to the front of the peloton and drive up the pace.  Then to set up their final lead-out men to carry their man out of the wind, rested and ready to lay it all out for the win.  It was left to Garmin-Sharp for Haas and Lotto for the German National Champion, Andre Greipel.  Notice the Lotto rider in red, trying to get more calories in for a final burst of speed.  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.
