Everyone had been waiting for the attacks to come, but it was not until the final climb of the Women's Elite Road Race did the aggression really come out. The first to put in a serious attack was American Evelyn Stevens who had already claimed the bronze medal in the Elite Women's Time Trial. Given her pedigree, Marianne Vos (Netherlands) and Lizzie Armistead (United Kingdom) were not about to let the American slip off the front. The fourth rider in the line is Lisa Brennauer of Germany followed by the rest of the favorites to claim the Rainbow at the line. This is a small watercolor and ink painting that is available through my artist website at www.greigleach.com.
