Giro d'Italia Stage 5: "Yes, Two Please"

While it looks like Elia Viviani (Team Cannondale) is confirming his order for two water bottles from the Camelbak sponsored neutral drinks moto.  Actually, he was chatting with the driver trying to learn how far back to the peloton (they were close to two minutes back).  Viviani was one of the several sprinters that made it into the early break, he managed to get second at the intermediate sprint behind Ben Swift (Team Sky).  Just in front of him in this painting is the American sprinter, Tyler Farrar (Garmin Sharp) who is fortunate enough to have a team mate with him in the break, Fabian Wegmann.  This is an original watercolor and ink postcard that is available for purchase at my artist website, www.greigleach.com.  For this painting, just follow the direct link at the end of this post.
