Volta Catalunya Stage 5: All for Naught

After awhile the two leaders, Burghardt (BMC) and Preidler (Giant Shimano) were joined by two more, however only Pierre Roland (Europcar) was able to hang with the two in the stiff winds.  Apparently the winds are frequent enough to warrant the installation of wind turbines.  However the break that got away after 50 kilometers was all for naught as the peloton reeled them in with only about 20 K left to ride.  This is an original watercolor and ink postcard that is available from my artist website at, or for this painting just follow the direct link at the end of this post.
