Giro Stage 7: A Bit Precarious

I am always struck by how the team mechanics are able to tend to their charges in the most difficult of circumstances.  Here this talented mechanic is more than half way out of the team car trying to fix the radio for Pier Paolo De Negri (Nippo Vini Fantini).  De Negri was one of the four man group that scooted off the front of the peloton at the front end of a very long stage.  He was joined by Nikolay Mihaylov (CCC Sprandi), Nicola Boem (Bardiani CSF) and Marco Bardiera (Androni Giacottoli).

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 and all of my cycling art is available through my artist website at  To purchase this particular painting, just follow the direct link at the end of this post.  And yes, international shipping is available.  Do act quickly to get your own piece of the 98th Giro d'Italia.
