Richmond 2015 UCI Worlds: Going to Southside

All but the Men's Elite TT include a quick jaunt over the Robert E Lee Bridge into the southside of the city (my neck of the woods).  Just at the beginning of the Bridge is the first (and third) time checks out on the course.  Trixi Worrack (Germany) was the first of quite a few riders to get any where near the early mark set by Kristen Armstrong although not close enough to move her from the top of the leader board.

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.  What is unusual about this race for me is that I am painting it live at the Fanfest area, sitting directly across form the podium and the hot seats where the well placed finishers await the final verdict of the clock.  You can come watch me paint there, or watch it on a live stream at www.richmond.com.  The works are available as originals or two different size prints at Fanfest, or later at www.richmond.com.
