Richmond 2015 UCI Worlds: Going It Alone

The Dutch team has been pushing the pace of the race around every lap.  With every attack there was a Dutch woman ready to drive the pace to pull the escapee back.  When it was Chantel Blaak's (Netherlands) time she jumped away on the ascent of the twisting cobbles of Libbie Hill.  Just so you all know, this is not a road that is ever open to traffic it is merely for us fool hardy cyclists to scale.

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.
