Unlike yesterday, the break away was only two men both of whom have been off the front before today. With a mass sprint expected at the end of the day, Stephane Rosetto (Cofidis) and Yoann Offredo (Wanty-Gobert) were allowed to go from kilometer one. With so few points on offer towards the Maillot a Pois there was not much for the peloton to worry about. All that was necessary was to make sure they were back in the fold before the final sprint in Chalon sur Saone.
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.
