US Pro Challenge Stage 3: Taking It All

The pair that came together to the line on Monarch Mountain, had been the protected riders for their respective teams, both hit the front hard and sprinted together for the summit.  However the day and the stage were to go to the celebratory Tejay van Garderen (BMC), he had gotten enough separation to take over the lead in the race and had garnered enough KOM points to take the jersey from Ben Jacques0Magnes (Jamis).  Rafal Majka (Tinkoff Saxo) did not gain any jersey or stage wins to add to his palmares, but he did move himself into second place in the overall with Tejay's teammate, Ben Hermans just a second behind him.  Tom Danielson (Garmin Sharp) lost time but still managed to hold fourth place overall.  This is a small original watercolor and ink painting that is available through my artist website at  To purchase this painting, just follow the direct link at the end of this post.  But while you are at the website, why not take the time to look at all of the cycling art that is on offer.  There is quite a few paintings from the 2014 ProTour season still available.
