Giro Day Twenty: Out of the Saddle

Cadel Evans set out with high hopes for the stage today.  Every time the camera cut to him, he was out of the saddle driving his cadence and climbing as fast as he could.  Unfortunately, looks can be deceiving, while I thought he was making great gains, he actually lost two minutes to Vincenzo Nibali.  He did manage to keep his second place on GC but Rigoberto Uran is now only 14 seconds behind him in third.  While it looks like the race is in hand for Nibali, there will be some hard racing for podium positions on the next two mountain stages.  This is an original watercolor and ink postcard and is available for purchase at my artist website.  Just follow the direct link at the end of this post.
