Giro, Stage 2: Pushing the Pace

On the descent, Team Bahrain-Merida came to the front and pushed the pace.  Their team leader, Vincenzo Nibali, is a brilliant descender, I guess they were hoping to put some of the other GC riders into difficulty.  They did opened up some gaps in the peloton on the way down, but nothing big enough that couldn't be closed down on the flat run in to the line.  The pink clad fans along the side of the road were thrilled to see their heros fly past.

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.
