Giro Day Twenty: Mountains & the Future

Stefano Pirazzi, bedecked all in the blue of the leader in the Mountain Jersey, found he had a future racer trying desperately to stay even with the climber along today's stage.  The kid was probably 12 or 13 and obviously wants to compete with the big boys.  I wish I knew his name, I would love to see if this fantasy becomes a reality.  He did get himself and the bike about 8 kilometers up the mountain side.  This is an original watercolor and ink postcard that can be yours by visiting my artist website.  Just follow the direct link at the end of this post to purchase your piece of the Giro d'Italia.
