Richmond 2015 UCI Worlds: Channeling the Last Century

While Rasmus Christian Quaade (Denmark) was sporting facial hair from the early days of cycling, neither his kit nor his bike bared any similarity to those of those bygone days.  I must admit that I sport a very similar 'stache but then I am not competing in a world class time trial.  It is not the most aerodynamic facial adornment.  Quaade was the first to change the leader board on the other end of his effort.

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.
