Tour Down Under: Rolling Along, Stage 3

With a steep climb of Corkscrew Hill facing the peloton at the end of a longer day in the saddle, it took some strong riders to hope to stay away to the finish.  The big guy at the back is one of the strongest, Jens Voight (Trek) along with the Astana rider, Andriy Grivko.  They were joined (actually they joined) Travis Meyer (Drapac) who got the break started and Jerome Cousin (Europcar), but it was the two veterans that weren't caught until the wind up to the final climb.  The peloton and the breaks are escorted by their team cars (complete with spare bikes and wheels) and a race referee.  This is an original watercolor and ink postcard that was created using cake watercolors from www.richesonart.com   In addition it can be yours by visiting my artist website, www.greigleach.com or you could just follow the direct link at the end of this post.
