The first spanish who wins the three races. Good for him!

And glorious painting Rob. In his official site, in the forum I have commented about this blog and this painting. Who knows. Maybe the same Contador come here to watch your painting. Sure he likes it.

Contador always had the legs for climbing. It's exciting to see him put it to use and take the win.
