Volta Catalunya Stage 1: Trying to Pull a Sneaky One

The title for this little painting is a quote from one of the broadcasters on as he was referring to this late attack by these three in the last kilometer of the final climb.  They, Mikael Cherel (AG2R), Wilco Kelderman (Belkin Pro Cycling) and Romain Hardy (Cofidis) were hoping to be able to use the fast descent into the costal town to stay away from the peloton.  It was looking good for the three until two of them goofed a turn in a roundabout at the base of the hill.  Kelderman got the direction right, but it only delayed the nearly sure fire catch by the peloton and the sprinters.  This is an original watercolor and ink postcard that can be yours by visiting my artist website at or for this particular painting, you could just follow the direct link at the end of this post.
