Once Kevin Reza (Europcar), the last of the early break was picked up, it was time for the counterattacks to start. The first out of the group was another Europcar rider, Pierre Rolland. His move was quickly covered by Andrew Talansky (Garmin Sharp) and although you can see him behind Andrew, Jakob Fuglsang (Astana). This attack was watched carefully by the faithful lieutenant of Roaquim Rodriquez, Daniel Moreno (Katusha). Katusha had worked way to hard for the Spaniard to let anyone steal the stage he had marked as his. This is an original watercolor and ink postcard that is available from my artist website at www.greigleach.com. For this painting follow the direct link at the end of this post.
