UCI World Championships Elite Men's Road Race: Under Italian Escort

Florence was the stage for the World Championships all this past week concluding with the Men's Elite Road Race with one of the longest courses that was slogged out in horrible storms and slippery wet roads of central Italy.  The Italian national team came to the front as the peloton hit the steep climb working hard to break apart the group, shed the sprinters and chase down the break up the road.  After all they were all racing on home roads, to bad the weather was more like the opening stages of the Tour of Britain, oddly the entire British team dropped out before the race had covered 170 of the over 240 kilometers of  the water logged course.  This is an original watercolor and ink postcard that has been created using cake watercolors, brushes and paper from www.richesonart.com  This painting is available by leaving me a comment and we can arrange payment and shipping.
