Giro d'Italia Stage 2: Along the Irish Coast

The peloton spend a long time discovering why Ireland is so green.  They spent most of the day in the rain and mist as they turned back for Belfast along the coast of the Irish Sea.  With a four man break up the road, it fell to the team of the Maglia Rosa to ride tempo (although Svein Tuft's jersey was hidden under his rain coast all day long).  Later the team of the sprinter, Marcel Kittel (Giant Shimano) joined in the chase too busy with the job at hand to enjoy the spectacular views and postcard beautiful scenery.  This is an original watercolor and ink postcard that is available through my artist website at www.greigleach.com or you could just follow the direct link at the end of this post.  But while you are there, why not take some time to browse all of the artwork on offer at the site?
