Giro Stage 14: And Away He Goes

Resplendent in his Colombian National Time Trial Champion kit, Rigoberto Uran (Etixx Quickstep) rolled down the start ramp full of hope and determination.  Uran has been caught out in several stages by the accelerations of Fabio Aru (Astana), Alberto Contador (Tinkoff Saxo) and Richie Porte (Sky), so the individual time trial should have been his chance to regain some of his time losses thus far in the Giro.  But like Porte, today just didn't seem to go according to script for the leader of the Etixx Quickstep team.

This is an original watercolor and ink painting that was created using Yarka St. Petersburg watercolors and Steve Quiller brushes from Jack Richeson & Company,  This painting is available for purchase through my artist website at  To buy this particular painting for only $50 USD, just follow the direct link at the end of this post.  International shipping is available.
