Giro d'Italia Stage 14: Attacking the Maglia Rosa

The only away to gain time on the Maglia Rosa is to attack on the climbs, that is just what the diminutive Italian, Domenico Pozzovivo (AG2R) did.  This group is all of the GC hopefuls, along with Pozzovivo, the wearer of the Maglia Blanco, Rafal Majka (Tinkoff Saxo), the Maglia Rosa - Rigoberto Uran (OPQS), Nairo Quintana (Movistar) and just peeking around Quintana's shoulder, Cadel Evans (BMC).  One of the many great things about pro cycling is how close fans can get to their heroes, sometimes too close and they gain that access for free.  There are no stadiums, tickets or preferred seating along the roads of Italy.  This is an original watercolor and ink postcard (4"x6") that is available through my artist website at for only $50 (USD).  For this particular painting, just follow the direct link at the end of this post.'Italia%202014/2369376---198213/Painting.html#.U4GNRM_D_IU
