Giro Stage 6: The Breakaway Killer

On a sprinter's team, there is always one guy whose job it is to get on the front of the peloton and chase down any break that is up the road.  Giant Alpecin not only has some great sprinters, they also have one of the best break away killers, Ji Cheng.  Fortunately for Cheng, other teams put a guy on the front to work on behalf of their fast men.  So LottoNL Jumbo, Lotto Soudal and Trek Factory Racing all aided in the effort to reel the escapees back into the fold.

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.  You can find all of their wonderful art supplies at www.greigleach.com.  To purchase this particular painting just follow the direct link at the end of this post.  All of the cycling art sells for only $50 USD and international shipping is available.
