Tirreno-Adriatico Stage 2: The Job at Hand

The early break had gained over six minutes on the peloton so it was up to the team of the Magila Azurra, BMC, to go in search of the escapees.  With the beautiful country side to entertain their eyes, BMC worked tirelessly to bring the six back, with twenty kilometers left to ride those up the road had just over a minute on the American team.  Riding in the shadow, or more accurately, in the slipstream, were the teams of Movistar, Astana and Bora-Argon 18.

This is a small original watercolor and ink painting that was created using Yarka St. Petersburg watercolors and Steve Quiller brushes from www.richesonart.com.  This painting is available through my artist website at www.greigleach.com.  To purchase this painting just follow the direct link at the end of this post.
