Bergen 2017, Elite Men's Road Race: Getting Clear

The commentators for NBC Sports, Bob Roll and Paul Sherwin, had dubbed the short climb prior to Salmon Hill, the "Hill with No Name."  It was there that the Frenchman Tony Gallopin launched his attempt to get clear of the peloton.  He opened up a nice gap almost immediately, even if this the one kilometer where there were no fans watching at the side of the road.  It took a few moments for the peloton to react.  Surprising considering the strenght and reputation of Gallopin.  With the big climb and 13 kilometers yet to go, it was a tall order to stay away to the line.  However, nothing ventured, nothing gained.

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  This painting and all of my Olympics artwork will be available through my artist website at  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.
