Tour Down Under: Taking Control

For the second day in a row, Team Sky hid out in the peloton until the final kilometers in the race.  As the peloton started the final 8 kilometer climb up to the finishing line in Sterling, Ian Stannard lead his teammates, Luke Rowe, Geraint Thomas and Peter Kennaugh as the Sky boys raised the pace just as BMC had done on the previous lap.  The question is, are they setting up Thomas for the GC or Kennaugh for the stage.  Hint, it was Kennaugh who was the first to start the sprint for the line.  Spoiler alert, he didn't get there first.

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.
