Giro d'Italia Stage 6: Expecting Rain

Stage 6 from Sassano to Montecassino was set to be one of the long stages of the Giro, but it was lengthened to 257 kilometers because of a landside on the original course.  The riders had to contend with a long day that looked to be ending with a heavy down pour before the final climb of the day.  A pro cyclist spends so much time on his bike, that he is capable of doing most anything while continuing to ride, including pulling on (and off) a rain coat, like Sebastien Chavanel (FDJ) as he road along with Arnaud Courteille (FDJ) and Giovanni Bernaudeau (Europcar).  This is an original watercolor and ink postcard that is available for purchase at my artist website,  For this particular painting, just follow the direct link at the end of this post.'Italia%202014/2364481---198213/Painting.html#.U3Wd0M_D_IU
