Giro, Stage 11: Filming the Chasers

Stage 11 went through the finishing line in Bagno di Romagna before heading out for another 50 kilometers of racing.  With the chasing group coming through the final kilometer area, it was a chance for the stationary camera to pick up the camera moto filming the chasers.  Leading the chase was Jose Jerrada (Movistar) followed by Ruben Plaza (Orica-Scott), Paolo Tiralongo (Astana) and a slew of others.  It is stunning to see what the cameramen on the back of the motorcycles go through to get the wonderful shots of the race, and what a day of racing it was, too!

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.
