Giro d'Italia Stage 6: Chatting It Over

Another stage and another breakaway, this one included Eduardo Zardini (Bardini-CSF) chatting with his Director Sportif on how to keep out ahead of the peloton.  The other three, Torres (Team Colombia), Marco Bardiera (Androni-Giocattoli) and Andrea Fedi (Neri Sottoli) are just ahead of him as they speed past the enthusiastic Italian fans.  This is the first day that I have seen crowds that came close to rivaling the Irish in both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.  At this point their maximum lead of seven minutes had slipped down to roughly five minutes, where it stayed for roughly 50 kilometers.  This is an original watercolor and ink postcard that was created using Yarka St. Petersburg watercolors and Steve Quiller brushes from  This (and all of my cycling art) is available for purchase at my artist website,, for only $50 USD.  For this particular painting, just follow the direct link at the end of this post.
