Richmond 2015 UCI Worlds: Making the First Move

With a long day in the saddle ahead of them, the peloton didn't exactly storm off of the line.  But there is always someone who wants to go out and look for some early glory.  After all, the break away almost never works out, but then there is that one time where it pays huge dividends.  Perhaps the Rwandan rider was looking for a chance to show his colors (I think it is Jean Bosco Insengiyumva),  The African was quickly joined in the effort by Omer Goldstein (Israel) and Jose Luis Rodriquez (Chile).  The trio would soon become a carrot for others who dreamed of a surprise victory.

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.
