Rio Olympics: On the Front

The bike leg of the Women's Triathlon was seeing the cream of the crop rise to the top, and the riders were rising to the top of the climb as well.  Nicola Spirig (Switzerland) lead the lead peloton up with the Chilean, Riveros on her wheel followed by the Amerian, Gwen Jorgensen.  All of these women were fearing the running leg of the American, so they were hoping to gain some time on her while on two wheels.  In the Olympic Triathlon, drafting is allowed during the bike leg, but it seems no one was truly using the technique to their advantage.

This is a small watercolors and ink painting measuring just 4"x6" and was created using Yarka St. Petersburg watercolors and Steve Quiller brushes from www.richesonart.com.  This painting and all of my Olympics artwork will be 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 this is an original work of art, so once it has been sold, it is gone.  Don't delay buy it now!
