Doha 2016, Elite Men's ITT: One Final Kilometer

The former hour record holder, Rohan Dennis (Australia) tried hard to be a factor today, but from the very first time check he was losing time against not only the eventual winner, Tony Martin (Germany) but also to the early leader, Ryan Mullins (Ireland).  Dennis has had some tough luck in these international competitions.  In Richmond last year he had a bike change during the ITT, costing him a chance to medal, and again in the Rio Olympics his handle bar broke requiring another bike change.  Today, it was his legs, and perhaps the heat, that interfered with his aspirations.  He did manage a top ten finish, claiming sixth on the tally board.

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.  It is only $75 USD and international shipping is available.
