Giro, Stage 6: One on One

The final sprint was first launched by Silvan Dillier (BMC) and was quickly covered by Jasper Stuyven (Trek-Segafredo).  Try as he might, Lukas Postlberger (Bora-Hansgrohe) just didn't have anything left in the legs to go with the last of his break away companions.  Dillier was able to hold of Stuyven as they sprinted stroke for stroke for the last hundred meters.  As they crossed the line each used their arms to show their emotions, one slamming the bars, the other throwing his arms wide.  All of it was watched by the race commissare standing up through his car's sunroof.

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.
