Milano-San Remo: Bringing Mark Back

Milano San Remo is a very long race, made longer this year by a rock slide that closed off part of the planned course.  The rerouting added another 9 kilometers to the stage, making the total kilometers cover while racing 300 with another 7 K of the neutral start in the city of Milano.  With that many kilometers of road to cover, flats, mechanicals and even crashes were inevitable.  Mark Cavendish Dimension Data), sporting his new team's kit, was brought back to the back of the peloton by his teammate Serge Pauwels.  Given his past victory in the race, the TV Moto was sure to cover every move the sprinter made.  Notice that the camera operator is standing on the back of the motorcycle while filming, with his other hand firmly grasping a pole on the back of the bike.

This is a small original watercolor that was created using Yarka St. Petersburg watecolors and Steve Quiller brushes from  In addition, the painting is available through my artist website at  The painting is available for sale and can be found by following the direct link at the end of this post.
