Giro, Stage 20: They Need Time

Once Vincenzo Nibali (Bahrain-Merida) had gone on the offensive, it forced everyone else to respond.  Quickly joining the Italian was Thibaut Pinot (FDJ).  His attack brought the Maglia Rosa of Nairo Quintana (Movistar) out of the gruppa to join the effort.  Behind them, Tom Dumoulin (Sunweb) was struggling just a bit, so this trio was hoping to put as much time into the Dutchman as possible.  Everyone was made aware of Dumoulin's time trialing prowess on stage 15, so none wanted to cede the race to him on the final stage tomorrow.  Then of course their was a stage victory and podium positions to ride for today, as well.

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.
