The Junior Women's Individual Time Trial got underway today.  This is the first race of five that will test each category of riders against the clock.  The race is oft called the race of truth, since one can not rely on teammates, drafting or strategy to win the race.  In this case, it is just one young woman against the clock.  While not the first to start, Mikayla Harvey (New Zealand) was an early starter.   She is just rolling out of the start house and out into the blistering heat of the desert sun in Doha on her 13.7 kilometer effort

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.
