Richmond 2015 UCI Worlds: Setting the New Best Time

Team Movistar used to have a reputation for being very bad at the Team Time Trial discipline, that however, is no longer the case.  With only a few teams left on the road behind them, they clocked the new best time has they finished their ride at 5th and E. Broad Streets.  The effort didn't not win them the prize they sought, but it did manage to land them on the podium in third, so it will be Spanish Bronze for them.  Etixx Quickstep repeated their Silver Medal from Ponferrada and BMC repeated as well, but for them it is a second year as the World Team Time Trial Champion (Men's champion).

This is an original small watercolor and ink painting that is available as an original or two different size prints at the Convention Center.  Later they can be purchased through www.richmond.com.  This was created using Yarka St. Petersburg watercolors and Steve Quiller brushes from www.richesonart.com.

If you enjoy seeing these works, you can come down to the Fanfest at 5th and Marshall Streets, just a block from the finish line of every race of the 2015 UCI World Road Racing Championships, and watch me create the works in person.  You can also watch a live feed of me creating the works at www.richmond.com.  At the Fanfest, you will be able to buy prints in two different sizes, (8"x10" or 11"x17") and the originals are available for purchase as well.  Just look for me directly across from the podium.
