La Course: Come Around

As I said, as soon as one group was caught, another went.  Now it is Danielle King (Wiggle High5) looking over her shoulder.  She is both checking on her progress and trying to convince her companion riding for LIV-Plantur to come around to take a pull.  The woman behind the rider on the front will use thirty percent less energy than the one on the front.  Given the effort, King was trying to get a little help pushing through the wind.  Both were riding in the gutter up against the barriers trying to find the smoothest course up the Champs Elysees.

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.

Be sure to check out my second cycling art book, Art of Cycling: Richmond 2015 UCI Road World Championships, available online or through your local book seller.
