Tour Down Under: Taking the Team Over the Top

At the base of the first trip up Willunga Hill, the peloton caught up with (and quickly left behind) the early break away.  With the peloton all back together, Team BMC decided it was now time to push the pace and make it as hard for the other teams as possible.  As they reached the top of the climb, it was Danilo Wyss on the front follow by his teammates Rohan Dennis, Alessandro De Marchi and Richie Porte.  Porte is quite familiar with the climb, he has won the last two times the Tour Down Under has make this climb.  I am sure he and the team were planning on making it three in a row.

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.
