US Pro Challenge Stage 2: Grabbing a Drink

Just a few atypical aspects of this painting, usually road races are conducted on paved roads and despite the quality of its surface, this remains a dirt road.  The other deviation is team cars without the full tricked out paintjobs showing logos, team names and the principle team sponsors.  I assume it was to expensive to bring cars from Europe for the ProTour teams or it was just a chance for a car company to participate as a sponsor.  The latter seems to be the case given the descriptions of the vehicles given by Phil Liggett at some part of each broadcast.  Regardless, the sports director still hands bottles out of the car this time to the inaugural King of the Mountains' Jersey wearer, Ben Jacques-Magnes (Jamis-Hagens Bergman).  The jersey was won on his break away in the opening stage of the Challenge and is being further solidified today.  The only thing that may rain on his parade are the darkening clouds gathering on the horizon.  This is a small original watercolor and ink painting that is available through my artist website at  To purchase this particular painting, just follow the direct link at the end of this post.  They are only $50 USD, plus shipping.
