Giro Stage 11: Pushing On

The penultimate trip up the climb above the Autodromo was the only time King of the Mountain points would be awarded.  Although none of this group, Ryder Hesjedal (Cannondale Garmin), Carlos Betancur (AG2R), Ilnur Zakarin (Katusha) among others, where interested in gaining the points.  They were far more interested in claiming a stage of the Giro to add to the Palmares.  However, it was Zakarin who jumped out of the group, claimed the points and then pressed on with his attack.

This is a small original watercolor and ink painting that was created using Yarka St. Petersburg watercolors and Steve Quiller brushes from Jack Richeson & Company,  In addition, this painting is available for purchase for only $50 USD through my artist website at  To buy this particular painting, just follow the direct link at the end of this post.  But to hurry, this is a one of a kind painting and when it is gone, it is gone.
