Tour Down Under, Stage 2: From the Back
Jason Lea (UniSA-Australia) did well to get himself back into the early break of the day. With the only King of the Mountains points coming at just 26 kilometers into the stage, he needed to be off the front if he wanted to hold his new won polka dot jersey. He took the maximum points at the top of Checker Hill, and then left it for his break away companions to fight out the sprint points. Artyom Zakharov (Astana) took the first sprint, so Jaime Castrillo (Movistar) tried to attack from the back to get the jump on the Kazahk in Springton. Alas, Zakharov was too quick for the Spaniard in the second intermediate sprint as well.
This is a small 4x6 inch original watercolor painting that is available though my website at www.greigleach.com, or you can simply follow the direct link at the end of this post. Since it is an original it is first come first served. The painting was created using Yarka St Petersburg watercolors from Richesonart.com. The work sells for $75 plus shipping. And yes, international shipping is available.
