Tour Down Under: All Together at 1 K

Despite all of his efforts from the very start of the stage, Sean Lake (UniSA-Australia) was caught with less than 6 kilometers left to race.  The young Australian had been out front of the peloton for over 120 kilometers just to be swallowed up a few minutes from the finish of the day.  All was not in vain, he will be pulling on the King of the Mountains Jersey on the podium tonight.

All day Team Sky was hidden from view, until the peloton closed in on the final kilometer of the stage.  It was then that Peter Kennaugh (Team Sky) hit the front driving the pace for his sprinter.  Fortunately everyone got safely across the railroad crossing and were able to sprint it out for the stage win and the leader's ochre jersey.

This is a small original watercolor and ink painting created using watercolors from www.richesonart.com and is available through my artist website at www.greigleach.com.  To purchase this particular painting, just follow the direct link at the end of this post.  In addition, be sure to check out my new book, "Art of Cycling: Richmond 2015 UCI Road World Championships" available now at www.artofcycling.bike.
