Paris-Nice Stage 6: Putting the Team on the Front

As I have said AG2R was most aggressive in Paris Nice today and sensed weakness in Team Sky, so once the next breakaway had been caught (containing one of their own), the Director Sportif called all of the team to the front of the peloton and told them to ride and ride hard.  They were riding to the benefit of Carlos Betancur who started the day just 9 seconds down on the Yellow Jersey of Simon Geraints (who you can see at the back of the group).  AG2R has hit the 2014 season with renewed vigor hoping to reclaim French cycling's reputation.  This is an original watercolor and ink postcard that is available through my artist website,  Or you could just follow the direct link at the end of this post.
