Women's Tour of California, Stage 2, Double Checking

Ever the experience racer, Kristen Armstrong (Twenty 16-Ridebiker) looks back over her shoulder to make sure that she has brought the necessary number of teammates to the line.  In a Team Time Trial, the time for all of the riders is taken when a predetermined number of riders cross the finishing line.  In this case the magic number was four.  The young start of the Richmond UCI Road World Championships, Chloe Dygert, was the fourth and the one to stop the clock for the winning time for her team.  Chloe Dygert won both her classes' time trial and road race claiming the rainbow jersey for both victories.

This is a small original watercolor and ink painting that was created using Yarka St. Petersburg watercolors and Steve Quiller brushes from www.richesonart.com.  This painting along with my book, "Art of Cycling: Richmond 2015 UCI World Road Racing Championships," is available through my artist website at www.greigleach.com.  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.
