Giro d'Italia Stage 14: Did We Shake Them?

Garmin Sharp has had a rough Giro thus far so after Pierre Rolland (Europcar) attacked the peloton, Ryder Hesjedal (Garmin Sharp) and his teammate, Tom-Jette Slagter set out after the two Europcar teammates.  Ryder (one of the better names for a cyclist in the peloton) checked back over his shoulder to see what kind of gap they were getting on the group containing the Maglia Rosa and the other GC favorites.  He did spy Matteo Rabatini (Neri Sottoli) bridging up to him.  I image he would welcome the additional help in his escape attempt.  This is an original watercolor and ink postcard that is available for purchase through my artist website at  For this particular painting, just follow the direct link at the end of this post.'Italia%202014/2369372---198213/Painting.html#.U4GFxM_D_IU
