Tour of California, Stage 1: Stretching the Peloton

Once the peloton had made it over the one big climb of the day, it was time for teams to see if their sprinters were still in the group.  With everyone still onboard, it was Katusha who took up the chase of those up the road.  Katusha was riding for their very successful sprinter, Alexander Kristoff.  The other teams with strong hopes pinned to their fast men were happy to let the Russian team do the work of pulling back the break away.

This is a small original watercolor and ink painting (only 4"x6") that was created using Yarka St. Petersburg watercolors and Steve Quiller brushes from  The work, along with the rest of my cycling art and cycling art books, is available through my artist website at To purchase this particular painting just follow the direct link at the end of this post.
