Giro, Stage 6: Ultimo Chilometro

As the remaining trio from the break approached the red kite informing them that there was only on kilometer left to race, they were starting to size each other up.  Silvan Dillier (BMC), Jasper Stuyven (Trek-Segafredo) and Lukas Postlberger (Bora-Hansgrohe) were trying to decide who had anything left, or who was going to jump first.  They had to be a little careful while they slowed to play some cat and mouse, Simone Andreetta (Bardiani-CSF) wasn't too far behind them, and the peloton was closing fast on the Italian.  It would be a heartbreak to come up empty handed because they were too worried about who would be on what step of the podium.

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.
