Giro d'Italia Stage 7: Time to Talk

With the break away on one of the steeper uncategorized climbs of the day and the peloton starting to gain on them, Robinson Chalapud (Team Colombia) got into a bit of a discussion with Nathan Hass (Garmin Sharp) about speeding up the pace.  He is making the motion of revving a motorcycle in hopes of convincing Nathan to speed up, either it was a question of speed or Robinson felt that Haas wasn't putting in enough pulls at the front of the pace line.  Whatever the Colombian thought, it made for a five minute argument as the two maintain their order in the break's pace line.  Winner Anacona (Lampre-Belisol), another well named bike racer, just watched the two argue it out and kept pedaling doing his share of pulls.  No sense getting Chalapud cross with anyone else.  This is an original watercolor and ink postcard that is available for purchase at my artist website,  For this particular painting, you can follow the direct link at the end of this post.  But while you are at the website, why not take the time to browse all of the art that is on offer?'Italia%202014/2364867---198213/Painting.html#.U3ck2M_D_IU
