Volta Catalunya Stage 3: Do You Have Another One?

Today I had the opportunity to avoid riding in the cold strong winds of March (spending time riding a stationary bike instead), but that was not an option for the peloton today.  The riders were facing temperatures hovering around freezing and strong winds.  When you combined the two and add in fast descents off of mountains, the wind chill factor became bone chilling.  Rudy Molard (Cofidis) has just gotten another coat from the team car.  I don't know if you can see that he already has a black wind breaker on over his jersey and arm warmers.  The riders spent a good deal of time layering up for the descents and stripping down for the climbs.  This is an original watercolor and ink postcard that could be yours by visiting my artist website at  For this particular painting follow the direct link at the end of this post.  While you are there why not browse around all of the cycling art on offer?
