Tour Down Under: One for the Road, Stage 2

After making the steep climb up to where the finish line will be on the third lap the team helpers lined up to pass out water bottles at 40 kilometers per hour.  This is William Clarke grapping a bottle from the Drapac team worker.  With less than twenty kilometers to go, the riders are no longer allowed to get bottles or food from their team cars, so their only hope for another drink is from either the neutral service vehicle or from the side of the road.  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.
