Every nation (well almost every nation) awards a national champion each year for both road racing and time trialing. There are champions for women, Under 23, and every other cycling discipline as well. This is Italy's Road Champion, Franco Pillizotti, chatting with his fellow Androni Giocattoli -Venezuela team mate as they ride through the groves of olive trees and fields of crops on the Italian coast. This is an original watercolor and ink postcard and like all of the works in this series, was created with Richeson Company's watercolors, brushes and paper. (their web site is www.richesonart.com ). All of the work is for sale, including this one at my artist website. Just follow the direct link at the end of this post.
