Richmond 2015 UCI Worlds: Wearing the Green

Ryan Mullen of Team Ireland, had the advantage of being the penultimate rider to circumnavigate the 30 kilometer course due to his claiming silver on Ponferrada, Spain last year.  Unfortunately, his favored status forced him to race in deteriorating conditions.  As the afternoon wore on, the heavy grey skies finally drizzled cold rain on the speeding time trialist and the winds continued to blow harder.  Without the worsening weather Mullen may have been able to trade his silver for gold, instead he missed the podium altogether.

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.  The paintings are for sale each day at the Downtown Fanfest in the Greater Richmond Convention Center at 5th and Marshall Streets in Richmond, VA.  There are originals and two different sizes of prints being offered for sale starting at $20.00 USD. Eventually, they will be available through www.richmond.com.
