Tirreno-Adriatico Final Stage: Passing Them All

Fabian Cancellara (Trek-Segafredo) came out of the start gate on fire in the last stage of the Tirreno-Adriatico.  Cancellara is a specialist in the short individual time trial, having started many Tours de France in Yellow due to his speed in the Prologue TTs.  This may well be his final season and he obviously wants to go out with a spectacular year.  With just under a kilometer to go, he is passing Sonny Colbrelli (Bardiani CSF) who had started the 10 kilometer course a minute ahead of the Swiss rider.  Just up the road is the man who had started a minute ahead of Colbrelli.

This is a small original watercolor and ink painting that was created using Yarka St. Petersburg watecolors and Steve Quiller brushes both from  In addition, this painting is available from my artist website at  To purchase this original work of art, just follow the direct link at the end of this post.
