Tour Down Under, Stage 3: Sprinting for Seconds

I do enjoy a pun,  I am a dad after all.  I am also about to be a grandfather, so that makes puns doubly fun.  So...  Nathan Haas (Katusha-Alpecin) and Jay McCarthy (Bora-Hansgrohe) sprinted for bonus seconds and for second place at the intermediate sprint point.  Haas was able to hold of McCarthy for a 2 second bonus, McCarthy got a 1 second bonus.  Seems like quite a bit of energy for very little gain.  However, the Tour Down Under has been decided by just one second in the past.  And this duo finished 2017 on equal time with count back putting one on the podium and the other in the less than satisfying fourth place.

This is a small 4x6 inch original watercolor painting that is available through my artist website at created using Yarka St Petersburg watercolors from To purchase this artwork, just follow the direct link at the end of this post.  And yes, international shipping is available.
