Women's Tour of California, Stage 3: Stretching Her Legs

Chloe Dygert (Twenty 16-Ridebiker) bedecked in her rather attractive pink detailed Best Young Rider's Jersey, was the second rider to attempt to spoil the day of the sprinters.  Dygert used this very tactic to claim the Rainbow Jersey in her Junior Women's race in the 2015 UCI Road World Championships.  I imagine that there were some in the peloton who knew that this was one rider that they couldn't allow to escape their clutches.  She also claimed the Rainbow Jersey in the Junior Women's Individual Time Trial, so she is no stranger to riding fast on her own.

This is a small original watercolor and ink painting that was painting using Yarka St. Petersburg watercolors and Steve Quiller brushes from Jack Richeson & Company (www.richesonart.com).  This painting along with all of my cycling art, 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.  While you are at the website, be sure to check out my two cycling art books, "Book du Tour: Art of the 101st Tour de France" and, "Art of Cycling: Richmond 2015 UCI Road World Championships".

Naturally, Chloe Dygert features prominently in my book on the Richmond 2015 races.
