Velominati Super Prestige: Clasica San Sebastian

Velominati Super Prestige: Clasica San Sebastian

by / / 51 posts

The inaugural Velominati Super Prestige continues with its the first Summer Classic, Clasica Ciclista San Sebastian, on Saturday, July 31. This will be the first post-Tour event in the series and with the unpredictability of how riders are recovering, it makes this race a tough one to predict.

The route of this Basque road race is a difficult one, and this year’s new route makes it more suited to the strong climbers who can finish well like Damiano Can-he-go.  Defending champ Carlos Barredo showed good form at the Tour; will he be able to defend?  Peer deep into the race preview, and then deep into your heart, and divine your selections.

This winner of this Super Prestige edition will again earn an “Obey the Rules” bumper sticker  and all reader’s points qualify towards the final prize of the free Velominati Shop Apron.  As always, if you are inclined to enter, simply post your predictions for the top five placings in the comment section.  Make your picks for by the time tomorrow’s stage starts, regular VSP Rules apply.  Good luck!

Rules and results are posted Velominati Super Prestige page.

  1. Please tell me you guys saw those podium girls! Holy smokes they were hot. TdF podium girls ain’t got shit compared to them!

  2. @Joe
    Outstanding way to commence the day of your nuptials. Congratulations.

  3. @Omar
    That comment is useless without pictures. Get on it, lad!!

    Can’t link directly to the pictures or embed them, but there’s a link to the photos on velonews.

    Those are, by far, the two hottest podium girls I have EVER seen.

  5. In fact, if I were him, this is exactly what I would say to those podium girls: “My middle name isn’t ‘Leon’ (Lion in Spanish) for nothing. Would you like to find out why? I’ll give you a hint, it’s not because I can win bike races.”

  6. And taking it one step further:
    Luis probably wants to take his Leon and give them the dirty Sanchez.

    Sorry Sammy, Luis wins this one.

  7. @Omar
    So what’s story, Omar, you just get outta prison? Sounds like is been a while.

    Think you are taking it a bit far to say they are the best ever – quite nice looking girls but a long way from La Grande Dame of the TdF, Ms Laura Antoine.

  8. @Marcus

    You’ve been living on the tundra too long! That Laura is waaaaaaaaaaay over-rated. Omar’s picks are way hotter.

    Julie Blanc is pretty tidy…

  9. @brett
    Brett – I agree that Julie Blanc is tres magnifique! Merci for the link.

    I always support Laura in that she looks like she is a whole lotta woman who could lay down some serious Rule #5 apres podium! And being invited back to the Tour has gotta count for something?

    I have no problemo with Omar’s picks – just that I wouldn’t call them the greatest of all time. Mme Blanc may come close though.

  10. @Marcus
    change that to c’est magnifique – although three of her would be even better

  11. @Marcus

    Three of her would be a great way to die!

    And the tundra comment… sorry, I was thinking of Marko. Which is a surefire way to quell any downstairs movements that Julie or Laura may initiate.

  12. @Gentlemen – many thanks. I am close to completely broken after the weekends festivities. Going to attempt to avoid the in laws this evening for a little cyclo-catharsis. The aromas and product that need to be expunged from my body will not be pleasant to witness, wish me luck.

    Love Drac’s comment at the end ‘my head wanted the victory but my legs couldn’t respond…’

    Weird squeaky voice? check, crazy white hair? check, refers to self in the 3rd person? bingo….Someone needs to photoshop him into a big leather armchair with one of those wrinkly, bald, cats. He’s a Bond villain isn’t he? Splendid.

  13. @Joe
    Belated congrats Joe. Now your challenge is to avoid breeding and blimping.

  14. @Marko
    … unless you relish the challenge of subsequently de-blimping as you rid yourself of 10 – 20 kgs (which, while painful, does provide its own peculiar sense of achievement).

  15. @ all

    I was all set to do a new post this arvo, but a couple of bottles of Epic Mayhem and the fact that I’m going to see a little band called the Pixies kinda got in the way…

    Could take a couple of days to recover, bear with me… Gouge Away!

  16. @all
    I missed some good stuff, it looks like. I will try to get to tallying up the results of the VSP and declaring the winner just as soon as I can.

    @Joe

    Congrats, mate.

  17. @frank
    Can you do an elephant with Cadel’s face?

  18. @Good Geofelephant

    A bit creepy, actually.

  19. @frank
    A++1.

    That’s genius-level shit, that is.

  20. Needs a cleft trunk…

  21. @Brett

    Favorite detail is the fact that I put Nigel Tunfnel’s chin on there.

  22. @all
    Completely forgot to score this…we all did pretty awful. I got 2 points, and the aside from that, only a handful of people scored a point. There was an 8-way tie for second with 1 point, and since I’m not eligible, I had to find a tie-breaker for the bumpersticker. It goes to Marcus, who was the first one to enter his picks.

    Well done, mate.
