These riders are preparing to start the last climb of the day, a brutal 20 kilometer climb with area of a 20% gradient and this after 200 kilometers and two other climbs. The team leaders are being brought food and drink to make sure they do not run out of energy before reaching the top of the mountain. The villagers have decked out the town with pink balloons and Italian flags to welcome the racers and all of the Giro d'Italia. This is an original watercolor and ink postcard and can be yours by bidding on the work in a short 3 day auction on ebay. Just follow the direct link at the end of this post.
