Giro, Stage 16: A Drink and a Plan

As the peloton sped through the valley floor, Eros Capecchi (Quickstep) dropped back to his team car for some advice and some fluids.  Quickstep now had a solid lead in the best young rider competition as well as the sprint points competition (not that there will be a lot of action in that one today).  The peloton contained most of the general classification contenders including the Maglia Rosa of Tome Dumoulin (Team Sunweb), with a few rather notable exceptions up the road.  It was looking like it would stack up to a real GC fight when they headed back over the Stelvio.

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.
