Spring Classics: Well Represented, Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne

The first weekend of March marks the start of racing in Europe with the famed Spring Classics mainly contest in narrow and oft cobbled roads of Belgium.  Today's Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne was fought out on dry roads and more hospitable temperatures than the weekends opener.  Heads up riding by Omega Pharma Quickstep and Team Belkin put the two teams in a ten man breakaway that was the deciding move of the day.  OPQS set out with the mission to atone for the failures of the first day of racing on home soil getting five of their eight riders into the move.  This is an original watercolor and ink painting created using cake watercolors and brushes from and can be yours by visiting my artist website at  Or you could just follow the direct link at the end of this post.
