Richmond 2015 UCI Worlds: Up Governor's Hill

The U23 Men's Road Race always had a breakaway up the road, but the cast seemed to continual alter.  The big German, Maximillian Schachmann, used his time trialing skills to bridge across to the remaining duo on the front of the Kazakh, Oleg Zemlyakov and the original breakaway member, Jose Luis Rodriquez of Chile.  Schachmann brought some much needed power to the effort just as the trio hit the flatest section of the course.

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.
