Giro, Stage 2: Is It Enough?

Andre Greipel (Lotto Soudal) was thrilled to take the stage in Tortoli.  He had a rough time out on the road prior to the flat run in to town.  Behind him Fernando Gavira (Quickstep), Kristian Sbaragil (Dimension Data), Enrio Battaglin (LottoNL Jumbo) and Ryan Gibbons (Dimension Data) just could not catch the wheel of the "Gorilla"  The fast man for Orica-Scott, Caleb Ewan had been bumped by Gavira, forcing him to unclipped from his pedal to stay upright.  With that move, Ewan had no chance to vie for stage victory.  With his win and the 10 second bonus, Greipel had enough time to take over the Maglia Rosa of race leader.

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 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:  This will be just one of the hundred plus paintings that will be included.
