Tour Down Under: High and Dry, Stage 4

Sorry, I am a big fan of puns, I think it is a father thing...

With the full heat of summer on in southern Australia and the area experiencing a prolonged drought, it is a sea of brown grasses with islands of green trees that surround the fight for KOM points on the only climb of Stage 4.  Cameron Wurf (Cannondale) and Axel Domont (AG2R) ridded themselves of their three breakaway companions to make the climb together.  With Domont cresting the Myponga ridge first, he was sure he had gained enough points to take over the Green Polka Dot jersey of the King of the Mountains leader, only to discover that Adam Hansen made it over in third place to just hang on to the jersey on his back.  This is an original watercolor and ink postcard that was created using cake watercolors from  It can be yours by visiting my artist website at or you could just follow the direct link at the end of this post to get your piece of the Tour Down Under.
