Il Lombardia: Tactical

The foursome, now a trio, had enough of a lead to start to play out some race tactics.  Diego Rosa (Astana) had tried to attack Rigoberto Uran (Cannondale-Drapac) and Johan Esteban Chaves (Orica-BikeExchange), but the two put him back into the fold on both occasions.  Rosa seemed to chat with Uran, perhaps trying to figure out how they could get rid of Uran's countryman, Chaves.  Chaves however was continuing his smart race, keeping his nose out of the wind and waiting for the right moment to attack.

This is a small watercolors and ink painting measuring just 4"x6" and was created using Yarka St. Petersburg watercolors and Steve Quiller brushes from www.richesonart.com.  This painting and all of my Olympics artwork will be available through my artist website at www.greigleach.com.  To purchase this particular painting just follow the direct link at the end of this post.  It is only $75 USD and international shipping is available.
