Volta Catalunya Stage 5: Making the Move

Just because everyone expects you to attack, it doesn't mean that it won't work.  Although Alberto Contratdor (Tinkoff Saxo) trailing Joaquim Rodriquez (Katusha) by just four seconds may have left it a little late in the final climb.  He may of been relying to heavily on his descending skills.  His jump from the peloton was first cover by the man in fourth place, Romain Bardet (AG2R) and then they were quickly marked by Damian Howson (Orica GreenEdge), Nairo Quintana (Movistar) - who is tied on time with Bardet, and the race leader, Rodriquez.  This important move washed away Lieuwe Westra (Astana) and Ryder Hesjedal (Garmin Sharp).  This is an original watercolor and ink postcard that could be yours by being the first to visit my artist website at, for this painting just follow the direct link at the end of this post.
