Giro, Stage 7: On the Job

Race mechanics are tasked with a very difficult job.  Their mistakes can effect the results of their team, and naturally, their quality work can effect things as well.  One of the team mechanics will ride in the team car ready to jump out and change wheels, bikes or repair whatever is broken within seconds.  Here the CCC Sprandi Polkowice man is swapping the rear wheel of Felix Grosschartner.  Once the switch is made, he will help push Grosschartner to get him back up to speed and back into the peloton.

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.
