Tour Down Under: Who Do We Have? Stage 4

Unlike the Tour du France, the Tour Down Under offers bonus time for both the intermediate sprints and to the top three finishers at the end of each stage.  With just 15 seconds separating Cadel Evans and Simon Gerrans, Orica-Greenedge was setting up to carry their man across the intermediate sprint first.  Unfortunately for them Elia Viviani (Cannondale) and Nathan Haas (Garmin Sharp) had something to say about it, leaving Gerrans third place and just 3 seconds bonus.  This painting is the lead-out men making sure they have their sprinters in tow as they wind up the pace.  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 to get your piece of the Tour Down Under.
