Richmond 2015 UCI Worlds: Fighting for Every Second

The Latvian rider, Aleksejs Saramotins, sprinted as hard as he could in a desperate attempt to gain the top seat in the waiting area.  He came up 55 seconds short of the leader's time, but it was still enough to slide him into the current second place.  A placing that slowly slipped away as the big names of the sport began to arrive at the finish line.  Ultimately he dropped all of the way down to 39th overall.

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.
