Volta Catalunya Stage 5: Third Time Is a Charm

A big climb near the end, the GC men fighting to get the bonus seconds on offer and a stiff head wind on the way into the final kilometer, it didn't look to be a day for the sprinters and it certainly didn't look like the only sprinter to win a stage could make it three out of five total stages.  Luka Mezgec (Giant Shimano) is proving himself to be another fine Slovak sprinter who can also get over the climbs.  However, the big climbs of stages 3 & 4, proved too tough for him to be close enough in GC to pull back on the leader's jersey he earned with his first two victories.  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, follow the direct link at the end of this post.
