Doha 2016, Men's TTT: Turning for Home

One of my new found favorite teams is Veranda's Willems Cycling Team.  And they raced well against the big UCI Pro Tour teams today.  In fact, as they finished their trip around the twisting, flat course, they claimed the top step of the podium.  Sadly it was only a very brief time on that special spot, never the less, they were there.  It is a little unusual to see the following team cars are actually four door pickup trucks, but I guess Nissan is trying to interest those in the desert with a vehicle that can easily handle the terrain.  I must admit I prefer seeing bikes in the back of the trucks then what they frequently have mounted there in other Middle Eastern countries.

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.
