Volta Catalunya Stage 6: Cap de Cursa

Another stage, another break away, but this one had a few extra things in its favor.  First it was a large group of nine riders, two, while they were strong the best placed rider was over eight minutes behind the race leader and, three, nine of the 22 teams in the race were represented in the group.  So this group was off with some big break away riders including the old man of the peloton, Jens Voigt (Trek Factory Racing) Pierre Rolland (Europcar) and Rudy Molard (Cofidis) and an up and coming Aussie, Damian Howson (Orica GreenEdge).  Maybe today will be the day that the peloton never sees the riders in the break until they are all back at the hotel.  This is an original watercolor and ink postcard that has been created using Yarka St. Petersburg watercolors and Steve Quiller brushes from  In addition this, and all of my cycling art in this blog, are available from my artist website at  For this particular painting follow the direct link at the end of this post.
