Giro Stage 20: Tending to the King

Race mechanics have a high pressure job, a mistake by them can mean a stage victory or an early exit from the Giro.  Then there is all of the tasks that face them.  For the Movistar mechanic, he had to provide AV services for Giovanni Visconti.  Visconti started the day in the Maglia Azzurro, the King of the Mountains Jersey.  However, others further up the road were in position to take it off of his shoulders by the end of the penultimate stage of the 98th Giro d'Italia.  Whoever pulled on the Jersey on the podium this evening, would be the one to claim the title of King of the Mountains for this year's Giro.

This is a small original watercolor and ink painting that was created using Yarka St. Petersburg watercolors and Steve Quiller brushes from  In addition, this painting is available for purchase from my artist website at  To buy this particular painting for only $50 USD, just follow the direct link at the end of this post.  But be advised, this is a one of a kind painting, so don't delay, when it is gone, it is gone.
