Giro, Stage 16: Barking Orders

Not quite sure what had Jasper Hansen's (Astana) nickers in a twist, but he was sure giving an earful to the riders for Orica-Scott, Katusha-Alpecin and Franco Pellizotti (Bahrain-Merida).  They seemed to be disinterested in what he has to say.  I would interpret the elbows out gesture by Orica-Scott as a shrug, as in, "So what?"  With 40 kilometers left to race, I suspect he wanted more collaboration in chasing down those up the road.

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.
