Campionissimi

This work in progress is the second image in a suite of sport related pictures. Campionissimi, or Champions, is an Italian idiom used here to reference cycling's finest. I don't ride but love reading books on great cyclists and cycling events. My dad as a youngster recalls seeing the Champion of Champions, Fausto Coppi, ride in some race along the Ligurian coast (Milan–San Remo I wonder?). Watching the racing on steep mountain climbs is the inspiration for this image.
