New Best T18-107
It amuses me when I go back over the paintings, prepping them for posting to this blog. Sometimes I find interesting mistakes, misspellings or omissions. Today in my haste to create this painting while taping it for my You Tube channel, I seemed to have omitted the final word in the title. I had intended to entitle this, "New Best Time," but clearly I did not succeed in that effort. As Marc Soler (Movistar) approached the line, it was assumed he wasn't going to take over the lead in the stage up to his finish, but he did. Unfortunately for Soler, it didn't last long. His time was better about five minutes later and again just two minutes later. Ultimately, Soler ended the day in 9th place on the stage, nothing to be ashamed of when the top three from the World Championships finished ahead of the Spaniard.
