Giro Day Five: Wardrobe Change

On a day like Stage 5, with periods of bright sun and heavy rain, the riders found it difficult to be dress for the conditions on the road.  While the riders toss their water bottles to the side of the road, a favored souvenir for the fans along the way, they go back to the team cars to drop off the rain capes.  This is a rider for Team Sky disrobing at 40 kph while riding amongst cars and other racers.  This is an original watercolor and ink postcard and like all of the paintings in this series, it is available for sale on my artist website.  Just follow the link at the end of this post.
