Giro Stage 9: High Speed Descent

Today's break away feature the true long shot.  Tom Jelte Slagter (Cannondale Garmin) went for the solo ride to victory from 60 kilometers out.  With everyone behind having a chance to escape the wind and safe a little energy, it is a tall order to put one's nose in the wind and still out ride the rest of the peloton.  At least on the high speed descents he could catch his breath and pick his own line through the corners.

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,  This painting is available for purchase through my artist website at  To buy this particular painting for only $50 USD, just follow the direct link at the end of this post.  International shipping is available.
