Giro, Stage 20: All Who Matter

It may be their climbing domestiques who are on the front of the peloton, but it is all of the riders who figure in the overall general classification who are together as they scale the penultimate climb of this Giro.  Starting the day with less than a minute between the top four places, no one could afford to be inattentive, or worse, have bad legs today.  Nairo Quintana (Movistar) decked out in matching pink gloves, helmet and even sunglasses, kept a close eyes on all those behind him on GC and the road.  While all of the hopefuls are here, it is only Domenico Pozzovivo (Ag2r La Mondiale) who you can see popping out from the group a few riders back.

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.
