2014 UCI Worlds: Zipping Through Down

The Elite Men's Road Race marks the completion of the UCI World Road Racing Championships and the seventh day of races.  With 14 laps of the 18.2 kilometer course, the men were facing a long day in the saddle covering 154 kilometers in roughly six and a half hours.  The first break away of the day was able to build up a fifteen minute advantage on the peloton.  A peloton that didn't feel like taking risks early on the rain soaked roads of north western Spain.  The early group contained C.J. Quintero (Colombia), M Kvasina (Croatia), O. Polivoda (Ukraine) and Z. Savicka (Lithuania).  While the foursome was hopeful, there was little chance that the big names of the sport would let them steel the day or the Rainbow Jersey.  This is a small original watercolor and ink painting that was created using Yarka St. Petersburg watercolors and Steve Quiller brushes from Jack Richeson and Company,  The painting, and all of my works from the UCI Worlds, are available through my artist website at  To purchase this particular painting, just follow the direct link at the end of this post.  But while you are there, why not take the time to browse all of the art on offer?  International shipping is available.
