Paris-Nice Stage 5: Nibali Shows Himself

Shortly after Sylvain Chavanel was caught by the Team Sky lead peloton, his teammate, Stefan Denifl jumped away to try to grab the glory for the team.  However he was surprised by an attack from the group by last year's winner of the Giro d'Italia, Vincenzo Nibali (Astana).  Today as the hills got steeper, it was the first time Nibali showed himself to the TV cameras.  When someone of his caliber attacks it causes a violent reaction form the peloton.  This is an original watercolor and ink postcard that is available for purchase at my artist website, www.greigleach.com.  Or you could just follow the direct link at the end of this post.
