Tour Down Under, Stage 5: No Place to Hide
Matthieu Ladagnous (Groupama-FDJ) used the intermediate sprint to launch his attack on the peloton. Just after a sprint, the peloton will frequently sit up and regroup, so it is a good time to surprise the rest a go on the offensive. Ladagnous was joined in the venture by Ayden Toovey (UniSA-Australia), his second time out in front of the peloton today. The long straight roads along the South Australian coast didn't give these two much chance of hiding from the closing peloton. With 40 kilometers to race, and just a 40 second lead (down from almost 4 minutes) it didn't look like they would be the first to arrive in Strathalbyn.
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.
