Volta Catalunya Stage 3: The Leader Follows Them

The three big names for today's stage are, Nairo Quintana (Movistar), Roaquim Rodriquez (Katusha) and Alberto Contrador (Tinkoff-Saxo) so it is up to their teams to go to the front of the peloton and pull back the break away.  The title is a little pun on "follow the leader" since here it is the team leaders that are follow the domestiques of their teams.  While the break had almost 10 minutes at this point, by the valley before the last climb of the day, their teams had pull the break back inside of 3 minutes.  This is an original watercolor and ink postcard that is available through my artist website,  For this particular painting, follow the direct link at the end of this post.
