Volta Catalunya Stage 3: Picking Off the First One

As the break away hit the slopes before the final climb, some of the guys from the original break legs just couldn't continue to push the pace.  The pink shoulder peeking out of Michel Koch's (Cannondale) vest is that of the Intermediate Sprint Jersey, and sprinters are not known for their climbing abilities, it is no surprise that he was the first to be picked up by the peloton once it had gotten the bit between its collective teeth.  This is an original watercolor and ink postcard that is available through my artist website at www.greigleach.com.  For this painting follow the direct link at the end of this post.  But while you are there, why not browse around all of the galleries of cycling art?
