Giro Day Nine: Why Did We Let Him Go?

The original break away of the day let Maxim Belkov go on the second to last climb of the day, maybe thinking that he was just going for mountain jersey points and then would be back amongst them.  Instead he pressed on eventually gaining four minutes on this chase group who were keeping about three minutes on the Maglia Rosa Group (the biggest grouping of cyclist on the road that included the current race leader, Vincente Nibali).  The archway in the distance is the 30 kilometer to go banner that they have just passed through.  This is an original watercolor and ink postcard and can be yours by visiting my artist website.  Just follow the direct link at the end of this post.
