Donostia Classica: Taking Fluids

With the peloton approaching just 20 kilometers to go, riders were dropping back to their team cars to grab water bottles and gels.  Once there is less than 20 k to race, riders can no longer get any thing to eat from their team cars.  Mikel Nieve (Sky) was the man on the team to go back to the car.  He may have not only been collecting water for the team, he probably collect some information of the final climb as well.  It is less usual to see a rider with a bib number that end in a 1 being the one to go to the team car.  His #41 designates him as the team leader of Team Sky.

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, along with all of my cycling art, is available through my artist website at  While you are on the site, be sure to check out my other works of art and my two cycling books.  To purchase this particular painting, just follow the direct link at the end of this post.  Bear in mind that this is a one of a kind original and once it is gone, it is gone.
