Tour Down Under: Make It Fifteen, Stage 4

The big German sprinter, Andre Greipel (Lotto) finally had the right approach to the finish line to show why he is one of the fast men of the pro peloton.  Not quite having the balance for the two arm salute, he celebrated his fifteenth stage victory in the Tour Down Under with a fist pump and a firm grip on the handle bars.  He managed to just nip Elia Viviani (Cannondale) and Nathan Haas (Garmin Sharp) fortunately for Cadel Evans, Simon Gerrans wasn't able to pick up anymore bonus seconds on the stage.  His lead-out man, Jurgen Roelandts, did such a strong ride that he managed to cross the line in third on the stage. So that leaves the Ochre leader's jersey on the shoulders of Evans by seven seconds.  This is 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.
