Doha 2016, Men's TTT: In Pursuit

The reigning world champion team, BMC Pro Cycling, had the advantage of knowing the time splits of their main rival (actually they knew the splits of every team on the day), as they came back into the city of Doha.  It wasn't until the final kilometers that they dropped any of their teammates, but try as they might, they couldn't gain the half second or so on the times of Etixx-Quickstep.  So it was that BMC's two year reign came to an end in Doha, with the title passing back over to the Belgium team of Etixx-Quickstep, by the smallest of margins.  Even with Rohan Dennis riding with the likes of Taylor Phinney, they were not able to match nor better the time of the Tony Martin lead squad.

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.
