Giro, Stage 2: Back Through the Caravan

Apparently a rather large number of the peloton had flat tires on a particular stretch of road.  It reminded me of the day tacks were thrown on the road in the Tour de France.  Today it was just a bad road surface and a tightly packed peloton.  One of those caught out was the Luxembourg Champion, Bob Jungels (Quickstep).  As he made his way back through the team cars in the caravan, one of his teammates waited to help pull him back into the fold.

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 start of the Giro d'Italia, I am crowd funding my third cycling art book through Kickstarter.  I could use your support in making this book get made, please consider supporting 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.
