Giro, Stage 14: Having a Go

With out a single stage victory yet in their home tour, the Italians were eager to get a stage victory today.  Once his countryman, Diego Rosa (Sky) was caught, Domenico Pozzovivo (Ag2r La Mondiale) jumped out of the laboring peloton.  He went on the steepest section of the climb up to Oropa.  Behind both Mikel Landa (Sky) and Winner Anacona (Movistar) tried to catch onto the wheel of Rosa.

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.
