The American, Emma White, was one of the early riders of the Junior Women to hit the course on the first day of riders racing in their national colors. White had been posting new best times all along the course, times that she carried with her as she pushed all of the way to the line at 5th and E. Broad Streets. Her ride earned her the top seat as she watch rider after rider fail to knock her off of the leader's chair. It wasn't until her teammate, Chloe Dygert, hit the line that she knew it would be silver instead of gold for her efforts on the streets of Richmond.
This is a small original watercolor created using Yarka St. Petersburg watercolors and Steve Quiller brushed from www.richesonart.com. In addition, prints of this painting will be available through the Richmond Times Dispatch website at www.richmond.com, hopefully very soon.
