Tour of California, Stage 6: Sprinting Home

Andrew Talansky (Cannondale) must have been given wings by his Stars and Stripes jersey of USA Time Trial Champion.  Talansky was able to just nip the time of his country man, Taylor Phinney (BMC) briefly taking over the lead on the day.  Unfortunately for the American Champion, the Australian Champion was still out on the road.  By the end of the day, Talansky had to settle for second place on the day, but it did help move him up on the general classification.

This is a small original watercolor and ink painting that was created using Yarka St. Petersburg watercolors and Steve Quiller brushes from  This painting along with my book, "Art of Cycling: Richmond 2015 UCI World Road Racing Championships," is available through my artist website at  To purchase this particular painting, just follow the direct link at the end of this post.  Remember, it is a one of a kind piece, so once it is sold, it is no longer available.
