Tirreno-Adriatico Stage 3: Pushing to Stay Away

Never one to resist a good pun (defined by the groan it produces), the quartet of the early break were pushing themselves as hard as they could to keep away from the fast approaching peloton.  They had just 12 kilometers left to race, but the peloton could almost see them on the long straight roads on the way into Montalto di Castro.  Giorgio Cecchinel (Androni Gattoli) gave Domingos Concalves (Caja Rural) a little push forward in line, skipping a turn at the front hoping to safe a little energy for the finale.

This is a small original watercolor and ink painting that was created live using Yarka St. Petersburg watercolors and Steve Quiller brushes from  This painting is available through my artist website at, just follow the direct link at the end of this post to get your piece of Tirreno-Adriatico.
