On his final lap around the hilly circuit Ben Jacques-Maynes (Jamis Hagen Berman) felt that the peloton was getting too close and his break away companions, including his teammate, weren't working hard enough to stay away. So in the valley before the first climb of the loop, he jumped out from behind the group to try to take a solo run back down into Aspen for the stage victory. Whoever manages to win the stage will also pull on the first Yellow Jersey of the fourth edition of the race. This is a small original watercolor and ink painting that is available through my artist website, www.greigleach.com. To purchase this painting, just follow the direct link at the end of this post.
