Doha 2016, Elite Women's Road Race: In Complete Control

With just five kilometers left until the new Women's World Champion would be decided the Dutch team switch from solo sorties to putting the whole team on the front of the peloton.  The entire team was clearly riding for the last orange jersey in the train, Kristen Wild.  The balance of the roster included, Annemiek Van Vleutin, Amy Pieters, Chantal Blaak, Roxanne Knetemann, Anna Van Der Breggen, Ellen Van Dijk and Marianne Vos.  This was a strong group of women who meant business!  Just popping into sight behind the Dutch Armada are a few members of the French team, looking to take over should the Dutch fail to hold off all of the others.

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.
