Tour Down Under: Down to Two

With the peloton just 45 seconds behind the break away, Martijn Keizer (LottoNL-Jumbo) sat up having seen the hand writing on the wall.  However, Alexis Gougeard (AG2R) had already claimed both intermediate sprints gaining 6 bonus seconds, whereas Sean Lake had already claimed the first leader's jersey of the Santos Tour Down Under, the King of the Mountains jersey for getting over the first climb of the season first.  By virtue of being off of the front, the pair were getting some great TV time from the TV Moto on their back wheel.

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.
