Giro, Stage 16: Coming Back

After he took care of business on the side of the road, Tom Dumoulin (Team Sunweb) got back on the road, and onto the climb.  On the way up the Stelvio via the Umbrail Pass, Dumoulin gained time on those behind him on the general classification.  He also got an anchor in the form of Gorka Izaguirre (Movistar).  Izaguirre knew that Dumoulin had to ride hard to pull back the time he lost on the side of the road, plus he could radio his team to let him know how the Maglia Rosa's progress was going in hopes that his team leader could use the information to his advantage.

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.
