Giro Day Twenty Two: Dressing for the Snow

The domestique has to help in any way he can.  Stefano Pirazzi has decided he needs a heavier jacket for the coming snow covered climb, so his Bardiani teammate is actually holding the heavier jacket in his teeth waiting for Pirazzi to remove the lighter jacket.  His teammate then passes the new one over, takes the lighter one and drops back to the team car.  In case you are thinking that is job done, he then pedals back up through the peleton, to be beside his team leader should another need arise.  All of this is in making sure that Pirazzi keeps the blue jersey of best climber in the 2013 Giro d'Italia.  This is an original watercolor and ink postcard that can be yours by visiting my artist web site.  Just follow the direct link at the end of this post.
