A Very Sticky Bottle KBK17-4
The title of this painting refers to the trick of the sport director holding onto the bottle longer than is necessary to give his rider a boost. The race directors can dock time if they deemed the act provided an advantage to the racer, they can even disqualify them from the race. Luke Durbridge (Orica-Scott) may have held on too long, but it did nothing to help in gain an unfair advantage. With a day of over 200 kilometers of racing in the cold, I am sure all of those out on their bikes were hoping for a rest of any sort.
