Giro, Stage 19: He Just Needs to Finish

Fernando Gaviria (Quickstep) was working his way back through the following caravan as he passed Alex Howes (Cannondale-Drapac).  Howes was filling his pockets, cages and jersey with waterbottles for his teammates.  A rider for each team will be assigned the task of dropping back to the car, picking up whatever is needed, and then work their way back up to his teammates distributing goodies along the way.  Gaviria as such a lead in the points competition, that all he needs to do now is finish the Giro and the final jersey will be his.  Alas, there is today's mountain stage, another one tomorrow and then the time trial.  By comparrison, the time trial will be the easy day.

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  This painting and all of my Olympics artwork will be available through my artist website at  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:  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.
