Did everyone got tired of seeing a nearly naked Marcel Kittel on the massage table for the Tour’s VSP page? I know I didn’t. Young Kennaugh will be sporting his British road race jersey and his proper shoe/sock pairing in this Vuelta. Get used to it. Ladies and gentleman we have a race. We have some Giro winners, we have some Tour...

  1. Swap Evans for Sanchez. Hold true to the rest. »

First run in 2002, the GP de Plouay-Bretagne is part of the women’s UCI World Cup series.  It’s 4.5 laps totaling 121km. As usual, there is little information or publicity for yet another women’s UCI race. Here is a start list. Here is the official French website. And yes, Ms. Vos won the last two editions. We regret the lack of...

  1. Delgado. This is a terrible VSP season for me. »

  1. @Floridian Valverde over Quintana?  Huh.  This Movistar team is a great mystery to me.  I didn’t think Valverde had it in him to ride like that anymore. »

  2. So I re-read the article at the top of this tonight.  A query was posed… “How many people picked Chris Horner to win last year? Just a moment, I’ll query the VSP generator for archived results.” One person. Me. But it would take a miracle to save my V»

  3. Too bad for Horner. VSP PICKS: 1. Quintana 2. Contador 3. Rodriguez 4. Froome 5. Evans »

The race of the funny hat.Every team seems to have included one or two riders fresh off the Tour. One would either feel ruined or unbeatable a week after that slug fest, more than likely, ruined. I imagine there are a few riders dodging calls from their directors this week. Continue reading...

  1. @ChrisO Based on his performance, Nibali would not be a bridesmaid to a Contador and a Froome. He took this race by the throat from day one.  He had time on both of them before they crashed out.  And he has been unstoppable since. »

  2. So, Horner finally attacks and Nibali goes with him?  Why?  Horner is not a threat.  You’ve got an ample cushion.  Nibali is fascinating.  This could doom Horner’s move because the other GC contenders will not want to let Nibs get up the road. Do you thi… »

  3. Delgado for the rest day.  Valverde better stay in second! »

  4. @velojello New favorite line. »

  5. @Mikael Liddy Does Porte have Low T?  It’s natural for testosterone levels to decline as men age, but sometimes low testosterone can cause symptoms ranging from low sex drive to depression. I will say no more. »

  6. Wow. Wow. Wow. Nibali.  I suppose I will slot him in on the rest day and leave Valverde where he is.  Meanhile, three DNFs in my top 5. Intriguing that Porte cracked.  What is Sky’s plan C? »

  7. Argh. Talansky is toast.  I forgot to do swaps yesterday.  I might as well call this a loss.  2 picks confirmed DNF. One showing that he is a baller but will likely be out.  A gamble on Horner and Valverde in the wrong spot. Not a shining VSP moment.  Bu… »

  8. Crazy, sure. But genius if I’m write. The only chance I have in this VSP is a do or die breakaway. VSP PICKS: 1. Chris Horner 2. Alejandro Valverde 3. Alberto Contador 4. Andrew Talansky 5. Chris Froome »

  1. Horner for the win. Mark this date.  I said he’d win the Vuelta.  Mind you, I got the rest of the top 5 all wrong. http://velonews.competitor.com/2014/06/news/horner-line-race-tour-de-france_332642 »

  1. This one could get very interesting.  There is an ITT which will suit Martin. But there are several days in the mountains around that.  Anyone know if Martin can hang for a day or two in the mountains? »

  2. More racing to distract me from the rest of this world. »

  3. VSP PICKS: 1. Wiggins 2. Cadel Evans 3. Tom Danielson 4. Rui Costa 5. Kreuziger »

@Erik's posts:

  1. @VeloVita Quintana is amazing.  I bet Movistar will regret their choice to back Valverde for le Tour. »

  2. No country for old men.  Italy, that is.  I will miss Cadel Evans. »

  3. Well shoot. Maybe I should have done rest day swaps.  Cadel can still pull this out.  Uran has never had the leadership role and it isn’t like OPQS has had many grand tour plans lately…. other than Levi Leipheimer. »

  4. 10 points to swap! 10 points! Forget it.  That would be 20 points down no matter what.  I’m playing my cards as dealt.  Won’t win. But I ride with pride. »
