Richmond 2015 UCI Worlds: The Brits Hit the Front

While the cast of the breakaway may keep changing the break itself was stubbornly refusing to be caught.  Just like it happens in a big Pro Tour race, it was up to the teams with a sprinter to come to the front and chase down the break.  Even though the British team didn't have Mark Cavendish to work for, they still hit the front in hopes of reeling in the escapees.

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.
