Tour of California Stage 7
10" x 8" Oil on panel.
Stage 7 was the downtown LA time trial. This is the view from the back side of the start ramp with the World Champ about to start (thanks to Jonathan Devich.) Spartacus is a class act on the time trial bike. Those rainbow stripes are a great tradition in the sport.
I remember it as a warm day in the sun checking bikes for UCI compliance. It might not be a fun job and the rules are kind of crazy, but it is important to ensure all of the riders are treated equally. It is also an interesting place to see each rider and their bike up close.
