Women's Tour of California Stage 1: Red Lining at the Summit

Borrowing a metaphor from auto racing, these three of the front of the peloton where making out their engines as they road over the only Queen of the Mountain climb of the day (cute change in competition title there isn't it?).  Sara Poidevin (Rally Cycling) was the first to hit the summit followed closely by Mara Abbot (Wiggle High5) and Tayler Wiles (USA Cycling).  Although I must say they must have all been on the rivot, since it appeared that no one seemed able to sprint for the points.

This is a small original watercolor and ink painting that was created using Yarka St. Petersburg watercolors and Steve Quiller brushes from  This painting and in fact, all of my cycling art, is available through my artist website at  To purchase this particular painting, just follow the direct link at the end of this post.
