Giro, Final Stage: Rolling

Pierre Rolland (Cannondale-Drapac) rolled down the ramp on his way to a less than stellar individual time trial.  He need not worry, he has raced a brilliant Giro that included a stage victory.  I will admit that I am a fan of the Frenchman and have enjoyed his agressive racing.  I imagine that today's performance was due partly to the aggression he has exhibited in the final week of the race.

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.

With the racing of the 100th Giro d'Italia, I am crowd funding my third cycling art book through Kickstarter.  I could use your support in helping this book get made, please consider backing the project here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1335072134/art-of-cycling-100th-giro-ditalia.  This will be just one of the hundred plus paintings that will be included. With Kickstarter, if there is not a 100% funded, no one is charged a dime, and the project recieves 0% funding.
