Giro d'Italia Stage 14: Timed It Perfectly

While it initially looked like Enrico Battaglin had been distanced by the other two, Dario Cataldo (Team Sky) and Jarlinson Pantano (Team Colombia), he found the strength to make a final surge for the line and to take the second victory in a row for his team, Bardiani CSF.  They have now proven that they belong at the Giro d'Italia.  It was Pantano that started the sprint, but he faded as they neared the finish, but it was Battaglin that pulled off a long charge slipping by Cataldo just before the finish.  He didn't dare raise his arms in victory until he was well across the end point.  This is an original watercolor and ink postcard that can be yours by visiting my artist website at  For this particular painting you can follow the direct link at the end of this post.'Italia%202014/2369380---198213/Painting.html#.U4GUMs_D_IU
