Volta Catalunya Stage 1: Trying to Get Across

It appears to be an unwritten rule that the riders in the wild card teams must be present in every break away in every stage of every race.  Unfortunately for Amets Txurruka of Caja Rural-Seguros RGA, they did make it into the early two man break, so he jumped from the peloton on the category one climb of the day in search of the others up the road.  He did make it near the base of the final climb, but none of them were able to stay away all of the way up the climb.  This is an original watercolor and ink postcard that is available for purchase at my artist website,  Or for this particular painting you could just follow the direct link at the end of this post.
