2014 UCI Worlds: It's About the Position

The Time Trial, or the Race of Truth, is all about the individual's ability to slip through the wind with the least amount of  drag possible.  To that end, Tejay van Garderen, drops into his aerodynamic tuck, with his arms as close together as possible, the head down and the back arched all to present as little of his body to the wind.  The bikes are designed with the same basic purpose.  However, neither the bike nor the position of the rider astride the machine, are about control or agility, they are only about speed.  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.  Be sure to check out my soon to be released book of annotated art of the 101st Tour de France, "Book de Tour".  It is available for pre-order and international shipping is available.
