Tour Down Under, Stage 6: By a Tire

It seems appropriate that the final stage of the Tour Down Under should come to a photo finish.  With the over all race winner being determined by count back having finished on equal time, the final sprint should follow suit.  It was a perfectly timed bike throw that gave the victory to Andre Greipel (Lotto Soudal).  Caleb Ewan (Mitchelton-Scott) would have to take joy in one stage for himself and his teammates Tour win although a second place ain't bad.  For Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe) his third place finish made the points jersey his own.  It was a little odd seeing him out of the Rainbow Jersey, but then we have all gotten used to seeing him green during the Tour de France.

All the way around this had been a very exciting Tour Down Under.  This is a good omen for the coming Pro Tour season.  I will now go back into my studio to work on other projects.  I will be back painting a selection of the Spring Classics as the season progresses.
