Donostia Classica: Leaving the Others

The first attack on the Bordako Tontorra was launched by the leader (and former winner of this race), Adam Yates (Orica-BikeExchange).  The first to respond to the Englishman's attack was the Spaniard on the Russian team of Katusha, Joaquim Rodriguez.  Rodriguez bridged across and then went off on his own.  He left all of them behind as he neared the summit of the climb, could he reach the top still off the front?  With the finish line just seven kilometers from the top, it would be a fast dangerous ride down to the line in San Sebastian.

This is a small original watercolor and ink painting that was created using Yarka St. Petersburg watercolors and Steve Quiller brushes from Jack Richeson & Company.  This painting, along with all of my cycling art, is available through my artist website at  While you are on the site, be sure to check out my other works of art and my two cycling books.  To purchase this particular painting, just follow the direct link at the end of this post.  Bear in mind that this is a one of a kind original and once it is gone, it is gone.
