Giro Stage 4: Still Alone?

Attack after attack went from the drop of the start flag, but the peloton seemed in no mood to let anyone get off the front.  Finally, as they approached the first categorized climb of the day, another large breakaway formed and set about the business of leaving the peloton behind.  Eduardo Zardini (Bardiani CSF) decided to pick up where he left off in the previous stage.  As he reached the KOM point, he checked behind one more time, perhaps not believing that he could actually be reaching the summit of the Colla di Velva alone.

This is a small original watercolor and ink painting that was created using Yarka St. Petersburg watercolors and Steve Quiller brushes from Jack Richeson and Company, www.richesonart.com.  They are a lovely family run business that has incredible art supplies for professionals and hobbyist alike.  In addition, this painting (and all of my cycling art) is available for purchase through my artist website at www.greigleach.com.  To purchase this particular painting, just follow the direct link at the end of this post.  And, yes, international shipping is available.
