Giro, Stage 1: Surprising Them All

Surprising them all is exactly what Lukas Postlberger (Bora Hansgrohe) did, perhaps no one more than himself.  Behind him, you can make out the big sprinter, Andre Greipel (Lotto Soudal) and the diminutive sprinter, Caleb Ewan (Orica-Scott) desparately trying to catch the celebrating Austrian.  Postlberger's win means that he will claims both the Maglia Rosa of race leader and the Maglia Rosso of points leader.  Not a bad reward for a little surprising move.

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 start of the Giro d'Italia, I am crowd funding my third cycling art book through Kickstarter.  I could use your support in making this book get made, please consider supporting 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.
