Tour Down Under: Going It Alone

Stage 2 of the Tour Down Under feature a bit more climbing than the opening stage with the only KOM climb coming right out of the gate (again).  The climb proved too much for the sprinter, Rafael Valls Ferri (Lotto Soudal) as he was the first to withdrawal from the race.  His teammate, Adam Hansen, went off on his own in a solo effort to claim a stage for the Belgium team (Hansen is an Australian, however).  The Aussie held off the peloton for almost 80 kilometers before being reeled back in on the final circuit.

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.
