Giro, Stage 10: A Turn of Speed

Sorry, I'm at it again with the titles.  Just after the second intermediate time check was very tight u-turn that required the utmost care to negotiate.  Bob Jungels (Quickstep) went through the time check with the new best time.  He lost both the Maglia Rosa and the Maglia Bianco on the way up Blockhaus.  While is ride was exceptional today, it was unlikely it would be fast enough to regain both jerseys, but he was able to reclaim the Maglia Bianco of best young rider after today's third place finish.

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.
