Richmond 2015 UCI Worlds: Am I Away?

After the first trip up Libbie Hill it was the Russian, Svetlana Vasilieva, who took advantage of the steep descent and off camber corners to ride everyone off of her wheel.  She glances back over her shoulder to see if the peloton was going to let her go.  I will assume that in just two blocks she was going to turn right and hit the short 18% climb up 23rd Street.  I think that those behind figured she would be quickly back in the pack by the top of the rise.  They were right.

This is an original small watercolor and ink painting that was created using Yarka St. Petersburg watercolors and Steve Quiller brushes from www.richesonart.com.  These paintings are created live while watching the races through a feed provided by the Richmond 2015 Worlds organization.  For two more days, you will be able to watch me create the works live at the Fanfest area at 5th and Marshall Streets near the finish line.  You can also purchase either the originals or one of two different sizes of prints while you are there, or later at www.richmond.com.
