Giro d'Italia Stage 8: Attacking Each Other

Stage 8 to Montecapiolo started with a ten member breakaway that work well together building up to a ten minute lead on the peloton before the combination of a chasing peloton and ambitions within the escapees spell the flight's doom.  As the break started on the lower slopes of the first Category 1 climb of the 2014 Giro d'Italia, these three, Stefano Pirazzi (Bardiani CSF), Johan Davi Aredondo (Trek Factory Racing) and Perriq Quemeneur (Europcar), dropped the rest of the break as they set out in search of the cache of King of the Mountain points at the summit.  This is an original watercolor and ink postcard that is available for purchase through my artist website at  For this particular painting, just follow the direct link at the end of this post.'Italia%202014/2365127---198213/Painting.html#.U3hm9c_D_IU
