Giro d'Italia Stage 12: Getting Around His MInute Man

In a Time Trial, each rider leaves the start ramp in one minute intervals, until the last ten riders go, then it is three minutes between rider starts.  If one rider overtakes another, they must not draft or even get near to each other, obviously it the road is full of twist and turns that can be difficult to achieve.  After hitting a couple of turns together, Dario Cataldo (Team Sky) finally managed to swing wide on a corner to get around Alberto Losada (Katusha).  Cataldo went on to post an excellent time just nipping out Thomas De Gendt (OPQS).  This is an original watercolor and ink postcard (4"x6") that is available for purchase through my artist website at  For this particular painting you can follow the direct link at the end of this post.'Italia%202014/2368267---198213/Painting.html#.U37PR8_D_IU
