Richmond 2015 UCI Worlds: Caught at the Line

I was surprise to see that Stefan Kueng (Switzerland) was caught just meters from the finish line by the Polish rider, Maciej Bodnar.  Bodnar had left the start house a minute and a half behind the Swiss, but caught him at almost 33 miles later.  While it was a brave ride by Bodnar his effort only managed to secure him a spot in the top ten finishing  just a little over a minute behind the eventually race winner.

This is a small original watercolor and ink painting that was created using Yarka St. Petersburg watercolors and Steve Quiller brushes from www.richesonart.com.  In addition this painting is available along with two different sizes of prints in the Richmond Convention Center just a block away from the finish line of every race of the UCI World Road Racing Championships.  Just come look for me directly across from the awards podium.  Plus you can find a live stream of my painting the works at www.richmond.com were the paintings will soon be available for purchase.
