Giro, Stage 14: Trying to Escape

The peloton seemed in no mood to let a break away get established.  Rider after rider would put in an attack only to have others bridge across bringing the peloton with them.  Even at 25 kilometers covered, the trio of Manuel Senni (BMC), Quentin Jauregui (Ag2r La Mondiale) and Gregor Muhlberger (Bora-Hansgrohe) could see both riders bridging forward and the peloton closing in.  I'm sure as soon as they are caught, some one else will try an escape again.

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.
