Vuelta, Stage 17: Through the Crowd

Stefan Denifi (Aqua Blue Sport), the Austrian climber on the Irish team, salutes the crowd as he takes the stage on the summit of Los Machucos.  This climb was a brutal monster with sections that were near 30%, so steep that the builders of the road was had lateral grooves in the road surface to help vehicles keep traction on the way up the twisting hairpin turns.  Denifi was able to hold off the charging Alberto Contador, to take the first stage for his team, or any non-Pro Tour team in this year's Vuelta.

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  This painting and all of my Olympics artwork will be available through my artist website at  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.
