Giro, Stage 7: Photo Finish

Caleb Ewan (Orica-Scott) finally had the luck to get an open sprint to the line.  And with that he was able to pay back the efforts and faith of his teammates, just barely.  The race came down to inches needing a photo finish to decide the placings on the line.  It was Ewan for the stage by the width of a third of his front wheel.  Much harder to tell was who managed second and third.  It was decided by the officials that second place went to the Maglia Ciclamino of Fernando Gaviria (Quickstep) and third went to Sam Bennett (Bora-Hansgrohe).  Finishing out the top five was Andre Greipel (Lotto Soudal) and Jasper Stuyven (Trek-Segafredo).

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.
