Giro Stage 5: Launching an Attack

Dan Lloyd and Carlton Kirby providing commentary for BeIn Sports in the United States were sure that none of the General Classification contenders would try to put time into their rivals.  No sooner had they offered that opinion on the final climb of the day than Alberto Contador (Tinkoff Saxo)  launched an attack that caught everyone napping.  Fabio Aru (Astrana) was the first to set off after the talented Spaniard.  Contador's attack did not catch some of those still up the road, nor did he lose Aru or Richie Porte (Team Sky), but his efforts were enough to drop all of the other hopefuls and to put him into the Pink of race leader.  Chapeau, Alberto!

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, www.richesonart.com.  They are a small family run art supply company located in the upper midwest of the United States.  This painting is available for purchase through my artist website at www.greigleach.com for only $50 USD.  And yes, international shipping is available.  To buy this particular painting, just follow the direct link at the end of this post.
