Giro, Stage 19: Yes, Please

Pierre Rolland (Cannondale-Drapac) was one of the five that got themselves into the early break.  He is reaching back to one of the following cars in the caravan for a bidon.  The camera never did show me if it was his team car or neutral service. To his right rides Pello Bilbao (Astana) who had just been back to the Astana car to get bottles for himself and his teammate, Luis Leon Sanchez.  Today was the day to be in the break.  The peloton had all of the GC men in it, so they were willing to saunter their way to the final climb of the day.  Then the racing will be on in earnest!

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.,-Please-G17-133.html
