Giro, Stage 15: A Quick Peek

Jeremy Roy (FDJ) takes a quickl peek under his arm to see if the peloton was closing in on this group of escapees.  With the Frenchman are Moreno Hofland (Lotto Soudal), Eugert Zhupa (Wilier-Triestina) - it feels like he has been in every break of the Giro, Jan Barta (Bora-Hansgrohe) and bringing up the rear, Dries Devenyns (Quickstep).  This quintet was able to get a handful of seconds on the peloton, but were eventually reeled back in like several earlier attempts by others.  It seems that yet again, the peloton had a very specific group in mind that they were going to allow to form a break.  This was not one of the groups it had in mind.

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.
