Giro, Stage 20: They Want Their Jerseys Back

The duo of Tom Dumoulin (Sunweb) and Bob Jungels (Quickstep) had reason to work together in the cashing group.  Both were hoping to reclaim their previous leaders' jerseys.  For Dumoulin, his goal of the Maglia Rosa, was up the road on Nairo Quintana's shoulders.  And for Jungels, his Maglia Bianca, was just behind him, watching his every move, on the shoulders of Adam Yates (Orica-Scott).  Both of these guys have a reputation for being stronger at the individual time trial than those wearing their respective jerseys. So depending on the finish today, their will be a lot riding on the very specialized bikes of the time trial tomorrow.

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 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: 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. With Kickstarter, if there is not a 100% funded, no one is charged a dime, and the project recieves 0% funding.
